This is a documentation error. That precondition is not actually required
for that function. Thanks for finding it -- I'll fix it.

The segementation fault is another problem. I know that STLport, at least
as of ver 4.0, has a bug in its usage of allocators, so if you look in the
beginning of 'pool_alloc.hpp', you'll see I define:
for __SGI_STL_PORT <= 0x400. I suspect that if you define this, it will
