The namespace is a red herring (sorry) - I was just attempting to find the
simplest way to demonstrate the same error that I'm getting buried deep in
my own source code. There are other ways to excite the error, and you may be
on to something with white-space confusing VC++ - in the following code
cause the fatal compiler error, but this can be fixed by uncommenting the
noted preprocessor directives! I'm going to play with the white-space now
and see what I can determine.

typedef std::pair<int, int> edge_t;
typedef std::vector< edge_t > edge_list_t;

//#if 1 // uncomment to fix bug

  G( num_vertices, the_edges.begin(), the_edges.end() );
//#endif // uncomment to fix bug
  // result data: component ID for each vertex
  std::vector<int> c( boost::num_vertices(G) );
  int num = boost::connected_components(
    G, &c[0], boost::get( boost::vertex_color, G ), boost::dfs_visitor<>()
  return num;
