No, I'm sorry I forgot one line at the end:

thread = boost::thread(boost::bind(&boost::asio::io_service::run,

thread is a boost::thread member variable of the TcpSocket class I'm
trying to implement.
io_service and acceptor are also member variables of TcpSocket class.

Yes, you are right in fact in the TcpSocket destructor I already call:

    if (acceptor.is_open()) acceptor.close();
