Hi Gavin,

Yes, unfortunately the boost header file is included in an installed header file. The functionality is not used by users directly though, but inclusion is required because the Class holds a private 'boost::mutex'. I could probably have changed that by hiding the members in a pimpl pattern. But I've already implemented a fix that installs the patched header files and uses the original header file if possible
