Ticket #3809 (closed Bugs: fixed)
global namespace polution

As noted in this thread: http://lists.boost.org/Archives/boost/2010/01/160448.php all global symbols whether macros or extern "C" functions should start with a "boost_" prefix - both to avoid polluting the global namespace as far as is possible, and to make boost-related symbols readily identifiable and searchable.
Asio has the global symbol "asio_detail_posix_thread_function" which should probably be "boost_asio_detail_posix_thread_function".
