Perhaps I should add that I am using version 1.31 of boost. I have also
discovered that it seems (it might be an illusion, you never know) to work
when I compile against boost_thread-vc71-mt-gd-1_31.lib, but not against the
release lib boost_thread-vc71-mt-1_31.lib. I would have guessed that
compiling against the release lib would be better when compiling my program
in release mode and the debug lib in debug mode, but it doesn't seem to work
that way. If I compile againt the debug lib it does work.
