Windows WMI functions are called when creating or unlinking shared
memory or message queues. Sadly WMI usage is causing a lot of problems
and it's use will be removed. That means that shared memory and message
queues will survive to reboots, but that behavior is allowed by POSIX.
My tries to use kenel bootstamp and WMI to achieve kernel lifetime have
caused a lot of problems, so it's better to go back to the old,
pre-boost 1.39 behaviour than continue receiving bugs.

You can get the old behaviour commenting


in boost/interprocess/detail/tmp_helpers.hpp
