I suspect that since most of boost's implementation is header-only, symbols for the boost library functions are appearing in both libraries. I can get around this by specifying /FORCE:MULTIPLE when linking, but this isn't ideal. Is there a better way to get around this?

This is a bug in the compiler. The trunk contains
