Luckily, Vicente didn't merge the update to Boost.Thread to use the new
location and namespace of Boost.WinAPI to master, so this conflict
doesn't appear. I was wondering why the test matrix for Boost.Log master
was not showing the problems and apparently this is the reason. Sorry I
didn't realize this earlier.

So, to summarise:

- the problem was found and fixed in develop
- it didn't appear in master and should not affect the release because
Boost.Thread was not merged
- I have now merged Boost.Log to master, so even if Boost.Thread is
merged, it should still be fine

Sorry for the noise.
