This is very strange. The odb/mysql/database.hxx header contains class
declarations, so it is not clear to me how simply including it can
cause a memory leak. Does the test provide any pointers to where the
leak comes from (e.g., a stack trace)?

Also, which platform are you trying this on? If you are on Linux, you
may want to try valgrind. In fact, we extensively test every release
for memory leaks with this tool. So I would be very surprised if the
boost/test report is not bogus.
