There's no reverse iterator issue here. There's just a cut and paste mistake
in your test program. I hope you tried to use the debugger before posting to
Boost -- the problem was obvious to me with a few moments of debugging.

This line

    BOOST_TEST( *t1.first == bs[i - 1] );

needs to be

    BOOST_TEST( *t2.first == bs[i - 1] );

otherwise you dereference the end() value from the forward iterator test.
