That's strange, your program works fine for me. The constructor should
be being run on the line where you first create the pointer. If the
constructor isn't being run, you should be getting some sort of runtime
error when you try to dereference the pointer. What compiler are you
using? Can you put a breakpoint inside the constructor to verify that
it is never reached? Are you using the most recent version of the library?
