Really? I'm not so sure because when I look at the dissaembly of the
test and I only saw "xadd" from one of the functions. Didn't see an
"inc" from the other one.

Didn't realize they spit out timing information :-) Here's the timing
info the weak_ptr test..

CodeWarrior 8.3...

sp_counted_base_w32.hpp, 17.555
sp_counted_base_nt.hpp, 17.355
sp_counted_base_cw_x86.hpp, 17.215

VC 7.1...

sp_counted_base_w32.hpp, 13.259
sp_counted_base_nt.hpp, 13.319

Oh, I see. So you really need that weak_ptr_timing_test ;-)
