In the same vaule directory, there's:

This contains modified versions of:


as well as the test driver and more compilations. The
iter_fold_if_impl.hpp file was modified by copying parts of the
preprocessor output into the file and disabling the parts that were
replaced. This enabled seeing where the errors were occuring. Also,
several MPL_ASSERTS were placed in that file to check where the end
iterator was being passed to the iter_fold_if_backward_step
template. The *.sizeI.compile files shows where the assertions fail.
There's always at least one assertion failure. The number of failures
is governed by the size of the input sequence.

AFAICT, the iter_fold_if_backward_step should never be passed the end
iterator; hence, there's a bug in iter_fold_if_impl.hpp.

Am I missing something?
