I originally was using 1.32, but when I started having problems with
Serialization (about three days ago), I pulled boost off of CVS .

You offer great insight on this, it makes sense. I'll try it out as soon
as possible and give a reply to let you know how I made out.

Well, just an FYI then, the CVS version still doesn't work when using
multi threaded CRTs. :) As I mentioned above, I'm using a 3 day old
CVS. I can deal with it, though.

I'll take a look, but I've done the following:

1. Create a new project (I'm using Visual Studio .NET 2003)
2. Insert a new source file, paste the (first) example from the
Serialization documentation.
3. Change to multi threaded CRTs.

The project won't link. The only .lib file that the project will link up
with is the serialization*s.lib (the exact name escapes me right now).

This isn't to say I probably can't work around this (somehow). And
although I *really* hate to scream "bug" and have it be a user error, I
am starting to think there may actually be a problem with the library.

Thanks again for your insight, it's much appreciated.
