Are you _sure_ this is not a problem with the code?

This problem does only exist for Boost.crc not for any other Boost lib
(that we use.)

Regardless if this is a tools issue or not, of course it might be a
compiler/linker bug, it would be _really_ nice to resolve it in the
lib. So that "magic" hacks in the application code could be avoided.
