Probably true, although Boost.Threads' case is slightly different. It's not
about the C RTL; the whole Boost.Threads has to be a DLL when both the EXE
and a DLL use it. Otherwise the EXE and the DLL will have their own separate
thread locals.

In this case threadmon.dll should probably be integrated into
