Ok, great to hear the next version is close to being done, etc.

However, would it be possible to at least add something to the
documentation, or to add a test case to test for this problem, or to add
a workaround, or post a patch for a workaround, or something? 1.34 is
a long way away for a lot of us boost-users - 1.33 has only just arrived!

Maybe this problem is a non-issue for everyone else here? Otherwise,
fine, but it seems to me that theres been quite a few messages about
people getting bitten by this filesystem-as-a-dll problem. Thats quite
a few hours wasted, and a lot of frustration.

so, can we do something for the interim?
