Boost :

The following code snippet:

#include <boost/function.hpp>

class TestClass
  void doSomethingDefault(boost::function2<void, bool, bool>

int main()
  TestClass test;
  return 1;

Gives an internal compiler error on vc 7.1:

cl /nologo /Od /Ob0 /Z7 /W1 /MDd /EHsc /GR /TP
/Ic:\Software\boost\boost_1_33_1 /DWIN32 /D_WINDOWS /D_DEBUG /c
test.cpp /Fotest.obj
test.cpp(6) : fatal error C1001: INTERNAL COMPILER ERROR
       (compiler file 'msc1.cpp', line 2701)
        Please choose the Technical Support command on the Visual C++
        Help menu, or open the Technical Support help file for more
scons: *** [test.obj] Error 2
scons: building terminated because of errors.

(line 6 is the method declaration with the default value). If I remove
the use of the default value, the code compiles with no errors. I know
this code compiles and works correctly on gcc 4.0 and I believe I have
used it with older versions of gcc.

Is there something incorrect with my usage? If not, is this an known
issue? I searched through the bug tracker and the mailing lists but did
not see anything about this bug.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to work around this bug?
