Look into the new documentation under the section "Rationale" for and
explanation of this issue and how to address it.

This doesn't show up with demo_exception.cpp, I would have to see more
context. Again, this is described in the new "Rational Section"

This is not enforced by the "&" operator for just this reason.

This is an error in the demo - it wasn't updated for the new serialization
of shared pointers. I've fixed it and now plan to check it into the
developement CVS.

I don't see this on my machine. If you're projects specify a specific
library to link to, this may be an issue with the new auto-link. See the
section in the documentation of auto-linking.

I just compiled a test file on my machine. The test file consisted of just
the above headers. It compiled with no problem so I can't reproduce it.

Thanks for helping with the testing of this.
