Summary: isdigit, problem with namespace

Initial Comment:
In one of my projects I use the regex library, and it
works great. But unfortunately it seems to mess up my
namespaces, or something like that.
I included #include "boost/regex.hpp". Using the boost
library I am to call functions from the std namespace
(memset, isdigit, ...) like ::isdigit(). Without the
namespace-operator the compiler seems to have two
functions called isdigit. Now it happens that I am to use
another library along with regex (one of my company),
which uses an isdigit() call (without namespace-
operator), and which i must not alter.
Honestly, I'm a little bit puzzled at all that the regex-
library forces me to use the namespace-operator with
functions from std-namespace. Is this the way it was
ment, or did I somethig wrong?
Thanks for your help,
