Nope, the error can't be there. I make a strong use of bind on private
member functions, together with Boost.Signals or Boost.Function. It works
perfectly and is a great way to have a class encapsulate its methods while
allowing punctual access for a precise purpose.

In this case, did you try to make it public and see if the error disappears?
In my opinion, it won't.
