Yes, a bit.

Actually I thought I fixed this one. s.erase() seems to be working.

I does simplified example a bit. I run test under gdb and found it fails in
line similar to one above.

What means singular in this context? I do not see any problems with

Here is actual line which causes problems:

typedef utf::range_token_iterator<std::list<char>::iterator>
my_token_iterator tit( l.begin(), l.end() );

range_token_iterator implementation tries to build first token and use
method assign for string with two iterators. Second iterator wouldn't be end
but does it matter?

Just glitch from hurrying to fix it and making couple things together.
