if I understand you correctly you suggest to organize tests for each class
in its own executable and to run them separately, e.g. from a script. This
would definitely be an option, so I'll resort to that when no other
possibility is available.

However, there must be some component in Boost.Test which chooses in which
order tests are executed. It does not appear to be the linking order (I
have tried that). Hence I was just wondering whether ther was an easy way
to influence the execution order (which would then save me a few hours).
Alphabetic order ?

In any case thanks,
