On my personal machine (older 32bit dual core opensuse) I'm using < 1.5 
boost and /never/ had problems getting preview window using libsdl

On the buildbot server that I've been working on (emulates latest ubuntu 
64 bit ... in a rackspace setup) I'm using 1.53 boost and the other libs 
that I mentioned while trying to help with Yadgar's issues. Right now 
I'm only watching pov/uber github repos and /eventually/ hope to make 
those build results (the binaries) available for download.
