 This trivially fixable problem was reported by Toshiyuki Tega on 2007-05-
 05 on dev mail list and is still not fixed. Just remove the TEXT() and its

 I've just noticed that, in mutex.inl (boost::thread), a string argument
 to GetProcAddress is inproperly guarded by TEXT() macro.

 mutex.inl, line 27
   ... GetProcAddress(kernel_module, TEXT("TryEnterCriticalSection")));

 Since GetProcAddress doesn't have ANSI/Unicode versions, TEXT() should
 be stripped off. I'm referring to the 1.34.0 beta sources.
