This is a known issue. Range library interface have changed, and I
didn't find a time to fix the string_algo library yet.
I was hoping to fix it after 1.34 comes out. Now I'm not sure if I
should not wait a while after I read the ideas to start from 1.34 in the
new svn repository.
Anyway, it is broken for a very long time already so I will have to fix
it soon, no matter what it takes.
