Ah! This is just the sort of explanation I was looking for, but could not find--I guess my copy of the C++ standard has gone stale.

Based on this, it certainly would appear that GCC's behavior is conformant and that the combination of fast_pool_allocator and singleton_default presumes behavior which is unspecified.

Not yet. I'm on vacation this week, but I will try it as soon as possible. My only concern is whether referencing singleton_default from the constructor for fast_pool_singleton will guarantee proper initialization ordering.

3.6.2 doesn't really shed any light on how ordered and unordered initialization may be coupled. There isn't, for example, any expressed guarantee that non-locals will be initialized prior to first reference.
