Test cases with datasets and fixtures don't support flexible fixture interface. #203

I have a fixture that I use for several of my tests that requires using the setup() and teardown() methods offered by the flexible fixture interface. I use BOOST_FIXTURE_TEST_CASE to declare my test cases so I can use members of this fixture class in my test code. This works fine when I use it for normal test cases, but when I try to use it for test cases with datasets (declared via BOOST_DATA_TEST_CASE_F), the setup() and teardown() methods don't get called, causing the test cases to crash. Looking at the code, I notice that the code to run test cases with datasets doesn't call setup_conditional() or teardown_conditional() like the normal fixture test case code does. That should be a trivial fix, and should help avoid surprises in the future.

That fix does the trick. I'll work on getting everyone here using an upgraded or patched version. Thanks!
