Hi Stefan,

IMHO Martin's report with the crashing test as well as your with the apparent hanging of the
Intel build deserve more attention than other bug reports. A test timing out, regardless of
the CPU activity, is more indicative of an inefficiency. All my tests were timing out

Again, my concern is that a bug in the reference counting of std::string (or locale facets
management) should be reproducible everywhere. If not, then only a subset of platforms are
at fault -- so what is it? Is the atomic ops code defective there? We should be able to pinpoint
the defect accurately.

By no means I am dismissing it. It is at the very least an issue of efficiency. I will try
an Intel C++ build on x86_64 at some point today. What build type was that? I also notice
that you have 4.2.1 in your path? Are you building out of 4.2.1. tag? I built off 4.2.x branch
which also has support for custom timeouts (--soft-timeout) in rw_test.
