I just built a program that uses boost and wxWidgets using a GNU style build system from within msys. When I try to launch the program the CPU spins (~50%) and the program never actually starts. It does show up in the task manager.

I tested a few wxWidgets examples. They compile and execute without issue.

I have not directly tested boost as I don't yet understand how to test the libs used in the project I'm trying to build. Working on that.

From googling and reading old mailing list posts over the last few days I gather that this sort of thing might possibly have to do with botched run time linking. Can anyone advise on how to check whether that's the problem?
