I've eliminated any issues due to multi-threading as a candidate by having just
one in io_service::run(), and am still seeing the crash.

One additional bit of information is that the timer is scheduled for the very
first time by the main process, before the worker thread enters
io_service::run(). Is there any problem with scheduling a timer with one thread
and then re-scheduling it with another?
