The problem is that when BOOST_ASIO_ENABLE_CANCELIO is not defined,
asio\detail\win_iocp_handle_service.hpp makes it so
impl.safe_cancellation_thread_id_ is equal to 0 and then when cancelling the
following code is executed:

    else if (impl.safe_cancellation_thread_id_ == 0)
      // No operations have been started, so there's nothing to cancel.
      ec = boost::system::error_code();

Thus cancel() thinks there's nothing to cancel, and
asio::error::operation_not_supported isn't triggered.
