Summary: Regex for UChar or short on linux-x64

Initial Comment:
On my Linux-x64 machine, where sizeof(wchar_t) is 4 I want to use regex for ICU UnicodeStrings. Or, in fact on zero-terminated UChar* buffers.

But the following code crashes with a "bad_cast" exception:


#include <boost/regex/v4/regex.hpp>

typedef unsigned short UChar; // UChar from ICU
typedef boost::basic_regex<UChar> uregex;

int main()
    UChar ubuf[] = { 'a', 'b', 'c', 0};
    uregex re;


boost version is 1.35. g++ is 4.1.2.

tschau, towi.
