Quite a number of pieces of my code have stopped working since then, but the one that's really a pain is the ASIO piece. I have a lot of code that makes use of ASIO's async read/write and other calls and there seems to be a problem reading data from socket with async_read_until - sometimes I get empty string, there's valid data at other times.

I have no solution, but following thoughts popped up in my head:

Maybe some error occur during read/write. Do you check const
boost::system::error_code& error in all handlers?

Are buffers modified from only a single thread at a moment of time
(each handler has its own buffer?)?

Does OS limits allow you to create required amount of threads/sockets?
