Resultset::getString(string) crash.

This is on Visual Studio 2008 on a dual-core, 32 bit Vista machine. In the debug code (using the source code compiled with CMake) this runs fine, but in Release mode this bombs:

void getFromDB(vector<string>& dates) {
sql::Resultset res = stmt->executeQuery("SELECT FROM ...");
while (res->next()) {
string date = res->getString("date");
} // <<< crashing here (line 56)
delete res;

For some reason in the release compiled (against a MySQL C++ connector DLL) this crashes at the end of the loop with a heap corruption:

HEAP[sa-ms-release.exe]: Invalid address specified to RtlFreeHeap( 024E0000, 001C4280 ) Windows has triggered a breakpoint in sa-ms-release.exe.

I think I may be violating some basic C++ rule that causes the destructor to be called on a string I want to preserve inside the vector.

If I replace

string date = res->getString("date")
string date = string ("2008-11-23");

everything works fine. It seems to have to do with the string returned from the MySQL C++ Connector getString() method. The returned string is destroyed and that causes the problem, I guess. But more likely something else is wrong. I am using the release (opt) MySQL connector.

The header files are read from C++ options: /I "C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Connector C++ 1.0.5\include"

Linker options: /LIBPATH:"C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Connector C++ 1.0.5\lib\opt" ... mysqlcppconn.lib

And the DLL loaded is (in the PATH where I copied it from its installation directory where the connector put it): mysqlcppconn.dll C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin\mysqlcppconn.dll N/A N/A Symbols not loaded. 4 4/17/2009 15:16 74520000-74591000 [6492] sa-ms-release.exe: Native

Thanks for your help!
