Yes, just applied to CVS.
Tested on Win32 (after new tests added to rational_test.cpp):
Before rational.hpp patch: All compilers failed.
After rational.hpp patch: All compilers except GCC 2.95.3-5 passed.
The GCC failure has been failing in past tests; see below.
** GCC under cygwin
g++ -o boosttmp.exe -ftemplate-depth-40 -Ic:/boost/site
Running tests for boost::rational<long>
Implementation issue: the minimal size for a rational
is twice the size of the underlying integer type.
Checking to see if space is being wasted.
sizeof(long) == 4
sizeof(boost::rational<long>) == 12
Implementation has included padding bytes
Failed test ( !iss ) at line 337
139/140 tests succeeded (99%).
Return code: 1
