Hi Florian,

Thanks for your test code - it was very helpful in fixing a few more bugs.
The fibonacci heap code is based very closely on Knuth's implementation
from "The Stanford GraphBase" - but he uses some bit-level tricks, a few
of which got lost in the translation.

I just committed a fix to HEAD that I hope clears up the remaining bugs. Will
you please pull it down and let us know? It would be great to have the
fibonacci heap working to compare against mutable_queue and relaxed_heap.
