Subject: [boost] possible bug introduced in boost function

I have strong suspicions that the changes in boost::function made
today introduce a serious bug in the lifetime management of the
contained object. I don't have a simple test case to demonstrate it,
but a rather complicated use of boost::function which contains
shared_ptr in a boost::bind results in incorrect refcount which leads
to a crash.

Reverting to revision 48607 makes the shared_ptr refcount correct.
