No you're not doing anything wrong, it's a use case I simply oversaw,
so it's not your fault but mine ;-)
So, I corrected the problem and :
- added a templated constructor, with up to 5 arguments (can be
changed with the BOOST_MSM_CONSTRUCTOR_ARG_SIZE define)
- actualized the doc
- thanked you for this in the acknowledgments

You can download the change (in back/state machine.hpp) from the
sandbox ( I tested your
case and a few more so it should be ok now.

Thanks a lot for the report. I'm happy you like the library.
