Can you direct me to where in the Boost.Serialization code this is
happening? I'd like to have a look at this. What base class are you
referring to?

Of course you're right. Simply including the headers doesn't trigger
anything, but for example using BOOST_CLASS_EXPORT in a DLL and then
using archives from the main application should trigger the problem
for type info objects, if I'm not mistaken. Also using archives from
multiple DLLs, which is not an uncommen scenario for us, will trigger
multiple instances of static members in header files.
