I refactored a native C++ static library to use boost::thread and boost::asio instead of the Windows API. This static library is referenced by a C++/CLI dll built with the /clr switch; it acts as a wrapper for the managed upper layers to use.

I use Boost inside native C++ dlls referenced by C++/CLI dlls and that works fine, but this particular scenario is a first. I suspect that Boost and C++/CLI don't play nice together, since I had to be careful to use the PIMPL idiom to avoid boost headers from being indirectly included in C++/CLI code. But now that I have to forcibly link a Boost lib with my C++/CLI dll, things have gone awry. Is this a supported usage for Boost?

My environment: Boost 1.53.0, Visual Studio Professional 2012 Version 11.0.61030.00 Update 4, Windows 7 x64.

The error is an EEFileLoadException in KernelBase.dll. It happens right after my C++/CLI dll is loaded into memory. Here's the callstack:
