In a debug build the memory manager yells at me at auto_ptr<X[]>::~auto_ptr,
in delete[] this->get(), when I continue I get an access violation. Weird.

The line that triggers it is

  auto_ptr<B[]> b3(array_source_b());

so it must be the destructor of the temporary.

array_source_b() by itself works, array_sink_b(array_source_b()) doesn't.

Ah, yes, I see it now. You have the same #if/#endif pair there, too, so you
don't define a copy constructor and the compiler happily generates a

You do know that for MSVC 6 the non-template must come _after_ the template
as it's considered a specialization by the compiler, don't you? :-) [MSVC 7
seems to handle this as-is, without the #if.]

And what's this to do with the argument-dependent lookup?
