This can be done easier. The problem is that you are using this bit of code
slightly of topic. However you as already having discovered somehow need to convince the
linker to link in the lib. Since you are not referencing any exported symbols
this is the reason for not linking the lib in.

Without #pragma trickery this can be done in the following way:

extern "C" void tss_cleanup_implemented(void);

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
        tss_cleanup_implemented(); // just a dummy call to link the lib in
        printf("entering main\n");

        DWORD id;
        HANDLE h = CreateThread(NULL, 0, &f, 0, 0, &id);
        WaitForSingleObject(h, INFINITE);

        _dummy = 0;

        printf("leaving main\n");

        return _dummy;

In the meantime I did all this sort of tests. I would be glad if you could confirm
this. I will post the details in a separate mail. However you will need to tweak
your local copy of boost since it seems Mike did not yet have time to check
everything into the CVS.
