I don't have access to Metrowerks, so it's going to be difficult for
me to determine if this is a compiler specific issue. However, if
the regression tests pass, it's not likely. Can you reduce the code
to a short example that reproduces the issue?

No, there's no requirement that the mutex be used in a boost thread.
This trouble report surprises me, and I hope that together we can
discover what the issue is. We'll have to find a reproducable
example to do so, however.
