Ok. I was able to make a reproducible case. Though not *exactly* what I see
in my project. It is attached.
I hadn't noticed before, but in my project I had two
BOOST_CLASS_EXPORT in the DLL project.
That did registered the same extended_type_info<> instance to the ktmap.
When one was to be destroyed, it sets m_key to zero.
In the example I'm sending, the executable breaks in a more mysterious way.
Is more than one BOOST_CLASS_EXPORT, in different translation files,
suppose to work?
Removing the extra one, or not including the archives and export.hpp
also worked in this project.
It did int-defaulted the return type to the BOOST_CLASS_EXPORT(x);
when it was not defined,
that's why I it slip through me.

Yeah, that's very hard to test with boost.test facilities.
