I've found why it didn't work. Visual C++ has a compiler setting
that force the compiler to treat wchar_t as a built-in compiler
type instead of a typedef of short. Everything compiles and works
perfectly with this setting (/Zc:wchar_t). Well, except of being
the right thing it may be not very good for some Win32 API
functions that seem to prefer to work with wchars as shorts:(

Another question though:)

ptime::hours() etc ruturn an extreamly lengthy typedef instead of
long. Is it possible to "export" this typedef somehow in the
library? Just to save a little bit typing? :)))
