[C++-sig] missing procedure entry point in boost_python.dll

I just downloaded the 1.33.1 distribution of the boost libraries for 
Windows and quickly set up the Boost.Python Hello example in VC++ 6.5 by 
following the documentation on the boost site. Everything appears to 
compile well enough in both debug and release versions however when 
attempting to use the library I get this error:

The procedure entry point 
??1py_function_impl_base at objects@python at boost@@UAE at XZ could not be 
located in the dynamic link library boost_python.dll

The same error occurs when attempting to use python 2.2.3 and 2.4.

The name isn't entirely mangled so perhaps it can be of some help - has 
anyway has anyone come across this issue before, is it easily solvable? 
I didnt see this error when using a much older boost 1.29

Regards, Mat.
