Well, you do need a copy constructor - look a the line above, where
you pass filter by value in the filtered_graph constructor. The copy
constructor is called there (and anywhere else filter is passed by value).
But even though your filtered graph is declared as a
filtered_graph<graph_t, filter_t, filter_t>
You're only passing the constructor one filter (for the edges). So the
vertex filter is default constructed, then used, and you get a segmentation
fault. If you either (1) remove the extra filter_t template parameter or
(2) add an extra filter argument to the constructor, the segfault goes
