I'll check to make sure that this is fixed in the curent CVS. All the tests
passed for me on VC8 before I checked in the most recent version.

Iostreams doesn't use is_abstract<>; this must be from another library.

I still haven't updated symmetric filter to handle non-blocking i/o, so it's
currently broken. (I should say, I tried to updated it, but I haven't got it
working yet)
