Your example is really works.
I checked the difference in my case, and found that the problematic object is 
put in an archive file:

---------- x.cpp: -----------
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
class SomeClass
    cout << "Hello!\n";
static SomeClass my_instance;
------------- main.cpp: ------------
int main()
What i did:
g++ main.cpp -c -o main.o
g++ x.cpp -c -o x.o
ar r x.a x.o
g++ -o good main.o x.o
g++ -o bad main.o x.a

Try to start 'bad' and 'good' executables: the 'bad' does not execute the 
constructor. Is there any difference in linking or I created the archive 
wrong way?
