It's just Unicode and Boost, both are not abbreviations AFAIK.

Wait a second, these only affect the win32 API: it switches TCHAR from char to
wchar_t and in no way whatsoever affects boost (at least it shouldn't)! You
have the same extent of Unicode support in both modes.

Okay, if memory doesn't fail me, the 's' in '..-sgd-..' means static, but you
aren't linking statically, right? This might mean that the dynamic link
detection of boost's autolinking fails, did you #define _DLL anywhere?

Hmmm, if I understand that right, it simply doesn't inline some calls in debug
mode, which is a known issue. I have two ideas here, you could use __inline
or __forceinline (I forgot the exact name) for the compilation of the boost
lib or you could tell the linker to ignore the additional definitions.

BTW: this might have been more suitable for the users' mailinglist, but I'm
not sure.
