   Yes the parent map access is what causing the segfault. As you suggested
I did switch to iterator_property_map but unfortunately it still segfaults
at the previous location. Not sure if I am declaring Components_t at line
58 correctly.
The modified code can be found at

Thanks for taking a look, Jeremiah.
