Summary: [thread] [tss_hook.cpp] Suppress MSVC CRT memory leak report

Initial Comment:
MSVC CRT memory debugger pedantically complains about
an unreleased singleton allocation. Although the
consensus is that this is a harmless annoyance, it does
cause some concern for MSVC users who don't know what
is happening. Issue discussed in this Boost mailing
list thread:

Attached is a patch for tss_hook.cpp, which uses the
function _CrtSetDbgFlag to temporarily turn off heap
allocation tracking for the particular allocation in
question. It should have no effect except on MSVC debug
builds. On my configuration (msvc-8_0) it eliminates
the leak warnings.

The issue has been fixed in 1.34 and HEAD, altough
differently than the patch suggests. I cannot see that the
suggested patch is MT safe.

I will look into this, since AFAIK Michael Glassford
currently is not available.
