      Build mongoclient.lib/.dll.
      Build simple_client_demo.cpp, link against mongoclient.lib. Run the program and you will crash in the constructor for DBClientBase.

    Description

      It appears that if you link against mongoclient.dll in your project and then execute code that uses a static variable that's declared in the header but has storage reserved in the C++ driver, it may crash. The compiler seems to be allocating storage space for the static variable in the local application even though it should only be using the storage in the DLL.
