I hope it isn't compiler-dependent :( Which compiler are you using? Also, are
you checking the program exit code? The test doesn't actually print anything,
it just returns -1 on failure. I've changed the test to complain loudly if
something does fail.

I didn't mean to sound accusing; my apologies if I came across that way. The
pre-patch code is clearly wrong; I'm just not sure how to fix it at the

I looked at the changes to adjacency_matrix_test.cpp; they're only formatting
changes ("cvs diff -b" shows no differences). Reverting the patch to
boost/graph/adjacency_matrix.hpp does "fix" the problem for me (i.e.,
adjacency_matrix_test passes now). I can dig into this later today or this
evening, unless you have a chance; I don't understand the representation well
enough to put in a quick fix now.
