Option auto_start_dbg specifies whether Boost.Test should attempt to attach a debugger when a fatal system error occurs. At the moment this feature is only available on a few selected platforms: Win32 and *nix. There is a default debugger configured for these platforms. You can manually configure a different debugger. For more details on how to configure a debugger see the Boost.Test debug API, specifically the function boost::debug::set_debugger.
