I've got more problems with this. I've tried to use xml_oarchive, and forgot
to include proper header before BOOST_CLASS_EXPORT. The program is attached,
and it crashes at runtime with segfault.

Here's what debugger shows:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x4011d407 in std::ostream::sentry::sentry(std::ostream&) ()
   from /usr/lib/
(gdb) where
#0 0x4011d407 in std::ostream::sentry::sentry(std::ostream&) ()
   from /usr/lib/
#1 0x4011cdd6 in std::ostream::put(char) ()
   from /usr/lib/
#2 0x0804cff7 in
std::ostream>::put(int) (this=0xbffff63c, c=10)
    at basic_text_oprimitive.hpp:97

Heh, I'm using xml_oarchive, not text_oarchive, so seems like some code is
confused and uses text_oarchive when it should not.

Later on, I've added missing #include (commented out in derived.cpp in the
code I send). The results are not good, either. See attached error messages.

It seems that xml_oarchive expects NVP somewhere, but BOOST_CLASS_EXPORT fails
to provide it.

Finally, when I change 'derived.cpp' to start with:

    #include <boost/archive/text_oarchive.hpp>
    #include <boost/archive/binary_oarchive.hpp>
    #include <boost/serialization/export.hpp>


  #include <boost/archive/binary_oarchive.hpp>

to main.cpp before

  #include <boost/archive/text_oarchive.hpp>

and use binary_oarchive for storing, I get:

main: /space/NM/boost-serialization/boost/archive/basic_text_oarchive.hpp:128:
void boost::archive::basic_text_oarchive<Archive>::newtoken() [with Archive =
boost::archive::text_oarchive]: Assertion `false' failed.

Again, look like text archive is used... not binary one as should be.
