Yes, somehwat annoyingly, but easily cured by commenting it out /* source */
(or deleting, but then the helpful documentation is lost, so not my
preference). A Minor isse but a minor thing to cure.

John Maddock has used
using namespace std;
WITHIN the function scope
to overcome what I think was the same widespread problem in math
distributions with not finding pow in namespace std.
However, I am on holiday for 10 days, so I can't test for you now.
