Thanks for taking a look at the problem. IMO,
distributing objects between inlines and DLL functions
is not a very good idea. The classic example is:

//intended to be used as DLL.
class A
  char* m_data;

  //compiled into application
  inline ~A()
    if(m_data) delete[] m_data;

  //calls DLL
  void init();

void A::init()
   m_data = new char[10];

IMHO, boost needs to get rid of any possibility of
this to happen. Why does boost::signal() need a
DLL/LIB in the first place? Would not be just the .h
file enough?
