It turns out that I was using boost::long_long_type, and when I changed that typedef to long long the problem goes away.

I remember you mentioned this to me a while back:

I checked sizeof(long long) in my MSVC8 environment and it was 8 bytes, so I think I'm happy to use it.

Do you know what data type boost::long_long_type was using?

I ought to be able to check in a version of the code sometime tomorrow that works in MSVC8,9, gcc 3.2.2 and later, and icc9 and later.
