I'll take a look.

No problem.

I am storing the allocator, in struct functor_wrapper from
function_base.hpp, but it has a partial specialization for std::allocator
which doesn't store the allocator, and perhaps that's what you saw. Please
take another look:

Of course if the function object can use the small object optimization, the
functor_wrapper template is not used and no copy of the allocator is stored
in the boost::function.

Will do.
