I'm using a libstdc++ v3 snapshot. I checked, and char_traits is in there.

No, it's OK. As long as my code is "supposed" to work, I won't worry. After
all, I was only checking with gcc - the real build was on MSVC, which works.
(Oh, dear - is this a case of MSVC getting something right? Must file a bug
report to get it corrected...)

Thanks for the reassurance,
