Chasing "bugs" in 3rd party code that you haven't shared with us is not a sane 
policy. If we can't see the code, we certainly can't identify the root cause 
of the issue. Given that our library is working in our primary application 
(slapd) as well as multiple other projects, the burden of proof is on you to 
demonstrate that the bug is not caused by your C++ application.
