What is wrong with the call to depth_first_search? That is getting a
single vertex, not the whole range. I applied the kinds of things that
were in his patch (not always in the same way), so his issues should be
fixed. BGL was not built for out-of-core applications, though, so a lot
of the changes are implementation details that can't really be relied
upon. Are you trying to page in and out edge sets as needed, and that's
why you need ranges to be used more consistently?
