I also hit this and fixed it in, I believe, a simpler way:
(Also note that as long as the object is static and in a namespace,
static initialization fiasco will happen anyway, which is why I simply
moved it in the scope of the function.)

But as you can see there is no response there either yet.
I suspect that work on making boost.filesystem match std::filesystem is
taking all the author's available resources.
