I gave it a try with another testcase. It is attached to this mail, but is a
bit clumsy.
There are 3 directories: src (with the main app), lib1 and lib2. (the tests
are handmade)

The first test is to create a boost::any in lib1 and try to extract it in
 This works, as long as the executable is linked with -rdynamic. (the lib
doesn't need it). dlopen flags don't matter, too.

The second testcase is to create a boost::any in lib1, and try to extract it
in lib2.
 This works, as long as the first lib is opened with RTLD_GLOBAL flag.
 If the executable is linked _with_ -rdynamic all 3 modules now have the
same typeinfos. But this testcase even works _without_ the -rdynamic flag.
Then lib1 and lib2 share the same typeinfos, but the executable has a
different one (and cannot do anything with the boost::any from the libs)
