This is very strange. The symbols are all defined by the CRT. The _tls_used is
the 'magic' symbol that seems to be created by the linker itself when needed. As
far as we know it is used to create the automatic TLS directory for PE.

Nevertheless I tried to modify my local copy of the threadmon and it worked.
Here is what I did:

in file threadmon.cpp:

        #if defined(BOOST_MSVC) && (BOOST_MSVC >= 1310) //1310 == VC++ 7.1
            //As currently defined, the following is known
            //to work only for VC++ 7.1.
            //It is known not to work with VC 6.
            #include <libs/thread/src/pe_tls.ipp>
        #elif defined(BOOST_MSVC) && (BOOST_MSVC >= 1200) //200 == VC++ 6.0
            #include <libs/thread/src/pe6_tls.ipp>

the file pe6_tls.ipp is my original post, wrapped for C bindings:

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <windows.h>

extern "C" {
   ... original posted file ...

I am doing bjam -s"TOOLS=msvc" --prefix=C:\ install

I verified, that the correct version is getting called by stepping into the
source file with the debugger.

I hope his issue can be resolved.

BTW.: I am currently testing if there are any problems when linking
the boost threads statically to a user DLL,
and if there are any drawbacks/interferences to the
__declspec(thread) of the compiler, as was mentioned by Aaron.
