Boost :

I've also run into this problem, but using list<>.
I couldn't find anything else about this in the mailing list... (maybe I
used the wrong keywords in the search?)

Did someone find a portable solution? (i.e., without needing to recur to
ugly hacks such as using list<>::_Node)

Better yet... is there a portable way to use the "Object Usage" pool with
STL containers, instead of the static one?

  Thanks in advance
