Thanks for the great tip-
    I have organized the program to work this way. The sample code doesn't quite work, I had to cast the initialization function that is passed into unit_test_main (boost::unit_test::init_unit_test_func) .. I did that and I got pretty far but there is a strange runtime error that happens here:

get( test_unit_id id, test_unit_type t )
    test_unit* res = s_frk_impl().m_test_units[id];

    if( (res->p_type & t) == 0 )
        throw internal_error( "Invalid test unit type" );

    return *res;

The test case I added was simpler and had no parameters to pass:

    framework::master_test_suite().add( BOOST_TEST_CASE(TestMain) );

That happens successfully but the main test program never gets called and execution stops at the location above.

I saw this link:

Looks like I do need to autoregister a test suite first? I tried registering one with no luck.

Thanks for all your help!
