That looks very, very weird to me... And now I see, I get a stack
overfow as well, after moving boost_swap_impl::swap_impl to the boost
namespace, within my local copy of trunk/boost/utility/swap.hpp. I
tried MSVC9 (SP1 not yet applied).

My local copy of trunk/libs/utility/swap/test/primitive.cpp says:

I'm clueless now. How could moving boost_swap_impl::swap_impl to the
boost namespace possibly cause a stack overflow? Is it a known MSVC

Kind regards, Niels
