I knew about the linker folding feature, but didn't know that the test
wasn't failing only because folding wasn't on.

No. This issue has never been reported as a practical problem; whether this
is due to the fact that different functions of the same type sharing
representation is rare, or due to the fact that mem_fn comparisons are
rarely used, I don't know. Probably a combination of the two.
The problem is not limited to member pointers. Try this simple test:
std::cout << (f == g) << std::endl;
This potentially affects function<>::contains and bind equality, but we
don't have test cases for it. Yet.
