Boost Python issue with converters

Boost - Dev mailing list
Hi,

I have a question regarding the below code.

It's an example how to pass a custom class via shared_ptr to embedded
python code and it works when boost is dynamically linked.

Unfortunately the same code with statically linked boost doesn't work
with the following error message:

"No to_python (by-value) converter found for C++ type: class
boost::shared_ptr<class Foo>".

I don't understand why a different linking can affect type recognition
of a registered converter. What am I missing?

Can anybody help me out?

Thanks,

Dominik
