When statically linking the thread lib, the implementation is making use
of some lesser known PE (portable executable) file features to get
automatic cleanup of TSS (thread specific storage) variables.

This message means, that the cleanup works well when threads are
launched via the boost API, but fails for threads that are launched over
the native (i.e. W32) API.

It will need some research whether (and how) this behavior can be
implemented for this compiler.
