Stack trace:

Note that I had to copy across the locale and system DLLs as the binary
won't run directly from the test directory without them in the PATH
(Boost.Test takes care of this normally, but I just wanted to run it direct
from WinDbg).


I run Windows 7 x64 (completely up to date with all service packs and


I explicitly specified 32-bit this time.


Ran the tests again after explicitly setting: "toolset=msvc11.0
address-model=32 runtime-link=shared". Please see the log for failing tests:

Note that some of the extra compile spew may be omitted because I compiled
Boost first, then the tests, so all that was required when running the
Locale tests was to compile and link the tests, rather than also compile
Locale and System as I did last time.

5. I don't compile with ICU.

The above logs were generated after explicitly specifying
'runtime-link=shared' this time...

Also, I have confirmed with dumpbin that both the Boost.Locale DLL and the
test are dynamic linking to the CRT. Proof:

Thanks for looking into this.
