The trunk was changed back to using bad_lexical_cast (after having used
detail::no_lexical_conversion, with the types given in the what() string),
with the type_info of the types used given with the source()/target() member
functions, according to Kevlin Henney's suggestion.
I only applied this change to the trunk, at the time, but I've now merged it
(including the recent exception-patch) to 1.30.0, as well.
