The access violation. Weird, I know. It happens somewhere in
boost::call_once(init_cleanup_key, once) in tss.cpp, AFAICS, but I may be
wrong. It's very difficult to debug on 9x since you never know whether it'll
be Big Red Button time.

thread_specific_ptr<> uses call_once internally to initialize its cleanup
handler std::set. (Why isn't it a std::map, BTW? Looks like you are 'faking'
a map with a set?)

Perplexed me, too.
