Nor I do.

I've checked and BOOST_NESTED_TEMPLATE is correctly defined as 'template'.
It looks like a compiler bug then.
Undefining BOOST_NO_VOID_RETURNS worked well for me in strict mode, while it
fails when compiling in Microsoft compatibility mode. The #if test in
comeau.hpp only checks if Comeau is using MSVC6 as a backend, but it does
not check if it is working in strict mode or not. It would not be a problem
of course if the void return workaround compiled correctly.
