I found the explanation in the archives of this list.
The VLD isn't reporting a genuine leak but the allocation of a singleton.
This dynamic allocation isn't freed, but it will always be only one
allocation, so it's not a leak.
This leaves two questions, however.
1. Why the VLD is not reporting the non-deallocation in case of using
automatic storage for boost::thread rather than dynamic. As far as I can
see, this shouldn't make a difference. In fact, there as now way for
boost::thread to tell which storage class it has.
2. How you can tell VLD to stop complaining about this particular non-
I'd be interested in the answers, but I can't help you on that since I
don't have this platform.
