unrelated. The particular file the error is reported in did not change.

Jeff Garland and I have independently tried to figure out what the problem

workaround isn't possible.

Unless someone else comes up with a workaround, we don't seem to have much

fixes the problem. Thus the pending Boost release will have a regression
for the Date-Time library.
