Well, I have one program that just uses STL and the header-only Boost
Graph Library. I compiled it with MinGW GCC 4.5.0 and it runs fine.
For me, the problem seems to be anything in UTF. For example, the
attached minimal test case gives me the "The application failed to
initialize properly (0xc0000005)" error. I compiled it with:
g++ min_test.cpp -lboost_unit_test_framework-mgw45-mt-1_44.dll

I think that I will try MinGW GCC 4.4.0...
