But not with Boost.Test, I simply haven't been able to get any non-trivial
program to run correctly when built with MinGW gcc-4.5.0. For example in
libs/config/test the config_info program (pretty trivial) runs OK, but
config_test (less trivial) crashes and burns with the initialization error.
I haven't had a chance to work out what the cause is, and frankly I had
thought it was a problem with my MinGW installation as no one else seems to
have the issue...

Love to know what the answer is yours, John.
