I've investigated further. I wasn't aware of the correct way to run the 
python tests. Now I've recompiled a clean version of boost cvs_head 
everything works ok if I run the tests using 'bjam -sPYTHON_TEST_ARGS= 
test' in the 'boost\libs\python\test' directory.

What might be relevant is that if I run 'bjam' with no arguments, I can 
generate 'vector_indexing_suite_ext.pyd' in the 
directory. When I manually set PYTHONPATH to this directory and run 
'python vector_indexing_suite.py' I get the crash as before. Is this 
expected, relevant and/or interesting? I would have thought this would 
just have run that particular test.

Any help appreciated as always. Thanks,
