Yes, the same here, unfortunately. And the current regression tests just don't
catch this because they don't run the plain "end-user" library builds.

The dependency chain is Boost.Test-> Boost.Timer -> Boost.Chrono ->
Boost.System. This propagates "asynch-exceptions" to Boost.System and causes
the clash.
I've tried to solve this by using the "header-only" variant of Boost.System,
but this was only half-hearted and reverted after some hazardous test runs :-(

Perhaps we can, but I'm not an expert in vc exception handling...
