That seemed like a fair request, so I set about working out how to do
that. I've now run the tests on my x86 system and on the PPC64, with
differing results. The x86 one passes all the tests. The PPC64:

...failed updating 5 targets...
...skipped 5 targets...
...updated 12 targets...

The fails seem to be (I'm new at parsing this output):


In the smart_ptr_test and shared_ptr_test output I note a fair number of
use_count() related error messages, which might indeed indicate that the
shared_count is a problem area.

I have saved the output and can provide it on request, but I didn't
think that simply mailing it to the list was necessarily the right step
to take. What *is* the right step to take next?

Take care,
