There was some confusion on the list about how to specify <rtti>off for the
vc71 compiler in the Jamfile.v2. Since I'm no boost build expert (or more
concrete, I have minimal clue only how it works) I followed the suggestions.
So the Wave Jamfile.v2 files now contain a

    <toolset>msvc-7.1:<rtti>off # workaround for compiler bug

which is supposed to switch off the RTTI generation for this compiler
(because it otherwise shows the observed behaviour).

Very strange, there seems to occur some interaction between the vc71 and the
generated vc70 libraries. Could you please remove all the binaries generated
by your vc70 and compile boost from the scratch with the vc71
