    There is nothing unexpected to report :). Doing

typedef boost::filesystem::path location_t;

struct location_equal_to : std::binary_function<location_t, location_t,
    bool operator()(const location_t& lhs, const location_t& rhs) const
       return lhs.string() == rhs.string();

to use location_equal_to predicate in unordered_map, I got no more
do_increment and... remove this bottleneck at all. Can't say about
numbers but this operator == replacement was very helpful.
