I don't know what the problem is but quick googling resulted in this
topic, which looks similar:

My first guess is this has something to do with symbol relocation at
load time. Check that you're not mixing different versions of Boost or
other libs. Try to remove some libs you link with until you can
pinpoint the problematic combination.
