Subject: [Boost-users] Threads and virtual functions

here is a simplified code I wrote:

class A{
     void Run();
     void ThreadA();
     virtual void HandleSomething();

void A::HandleSomething()


void A::ThreadA()

void A::Run()
     boost::thread thread(&A::ThreadA,this);

This is my base class. As you can see the thread calls the virtual
function when the condition becomes true. I use the virtual function in
my derived class so everytime the condition becomes true the function
HandleSomething() should do something. So far, so good but when I try to
change some variables in the derived class the program crashes without
any warning or error message. I use the latest Ubuntu version with GCC
4.5.3 and boost 1.46.1.
