Aha. I think this may be the key. Thanks a lot. :) I was really wondering
what the heck was different. :)

Well, I think this reinforces the suggestion to define BOOST_NO_STRINGSTREAM
for 2.95.x. Comments?

Either that, or to have some way to detect where std::basic_stringstream<>
is not supported, and turn off wide character support for that, in
lexical_cast. Currently, it disables wide character support if one of the
following macros are set:


even though it may work partially or fully with wide characters, despite one
of these set. For example, Intel C++ 7.0 on Windows has intrinsic wchar_t,
and passes all the lexical_cast tests, but as the intrinsic characters have
to be turned on with a switch (for compatibility with MSVC 6/7), and there
appears to be no macro to detect the switch, the config sets
