Boost :

Assuming the debug version builds and passes all tests.

In the serialization Jamfile, set the release mode optimization switches to
be the same as the debug ones.

Try to build. If it passes add optimization switches one at a time until we
find the "magic one" which is creating the problem. Then we either alter
the Jamfile or amend xml_grammar.cpp with the appropriate #pragma to
suppress that optimization.

I know its tedious but its the only way I know.

Keep me posted
