Subject: Re: [boost] [mp_int] Patch for deallocate(NULL)

I neglected to include a test case that triggers the problem:

#include <iostream>
#include <boost/cstdint.hpp>
#include <boost/mp_math/mp_int.hpp>

using namespace boost::mp_math;
using namespace std;

int main()
  mp_int<> a = 1;
  cout << a << endl;

  return 0;
