The proposed solution was trivial: using assert(ptr!=0); removes the
warning. This [assert(ptr)] is a fairly common construct, and as it seems to
do no harm, and avoid annoying warnings, should we apply it Boost-wide?
If there's consensus that this should be done, I'll start applying it right
after 1_29_0 is released (yes, although it seems harmless I hesitate to
apply it to the RC branch).
