Has anyone tested this on Windows for you yet?

Before testing your patch, I tried to reproduce #2406 on Windows using
MSVC 7.1 but was unable to do so with Boost_1_39_0.

Perhaps my interpretation of the issue, and hence my test case is

Case #2406 says: "gzip.hpp has some implementation in the header which
will cause link errors if the component is used in more than one place"

My test case consisted of a main.cpp which included gzip.hpp and a
second module which also included gzip.hpp.

In both modules, they did something like:

        std::string str("This is my Test file\n");
        io::filtering_ostream out;
        out.push(io::file_sink("TestFile.gz", std::ios_base::out |
        out.write(str.c_str(), str.size());

Should I be getting the link error? ... or is there some other way to
trigger this issue?

Once I can reproduce it, I would be happy to try it again on trunk which
has your patch applied... assuming someone has not already confirmed it
for you.
