Ok, if you use dlls you should build Boost.Log as a shared library, too.

You mean the Locals tab in the IDE? In release builds (i.e. when
optimization is on) the debugger is often unable to correctly show
variables. In your case the logger variable is probably optimized away
due to NRVO.

If it reaches the logger construction, I'm rather positive that it's not
the problem.

Nothing criminal here too. Could you show your logging expression where
the crash occurs?

I'll try to reproduce the problem locally, but it would be very helpful
if you could create a small code sample that crashes.
