Thanks for the reply John,

Here are my details:

VS2008 Team, SP1

Command Line: /O2 /Oi /Ot /GL /D "WIN32" /D "NDEBUG" /D "_CONSOLE" /D "NOMINMAX" /D "_SCL_SECURE_NO_WARNINGS" /D "_SECURE_SCL=0" /D "_UNICODE" /D "UNICODE" /FD /EHsc /MT /Gy /Fo"Release\\" /Fd"Release\vc90.pdb" /W4 /nologo /c /Zi /TP /errorReport:prompt

In short a release mode build with _SECURE_SCL=0 should causes it to crash. static-linking or otherwise still causes it to crash.

You are absolutely correct and that is what I've done (added new defs to bjam build script), and in all cases this crash still occurs.

I'd like to clarify that I'm not saying this is a BOOST issue, I'm just wondering if the regression tests have a mode where this particular define is being used - as it seems necessary to have it in when building in release mode if performance is important.
