Not all headers cause this problem. For example,
<boost/interprocess/sync/interprocess_mutex.hpp> works fine. I guess these
upgradeable mutexes are quite new in Boost and not tested well on rather old
compiler? Anyway, before I asked you, I used google and saw that it happens
to many people, but found no answers nor workarounds.
