Whatever... Just fix the thing! To be honest, I'm having second thoughts
on using boost.test considering that it takes a long time to fix a
simple error like this and the other that I posted. Perhaps the next
version of Spirit will just use simple asserts as before. It seems
the benefits does not outweigh the cost. Perhaps I don't need an assert
on steroids if it gives me more problems to think about.
