Well, that's clear, but it doesn't say why it changed, and why it can
return a non valid path.

Thanks, for the moment, I fixed some part of my code checking path with
is_complete, but as we use this almost everywhere, I think I would
prefer to do it in boost.

Are there unit tests of boost path that I can run to be sure that
nothing is broken ?
