> does anyone ever use the -u options when running tests?

Yes -- I routinely do -uall, under both release and debug builds, but
only on Windows.  WinXP in particular seems to do a good job when
hyper-threading is available -- running the tests doesn't slow down
anything else I'm doing, except during the disk-intensive tests
(test_largefile is a major pig on Windows).
