i ported boost.lockfree to boost.atomic. the archive in the vault doesn't
reflect this change yet, but you can check out my latest sources from my git

the specific code, that triggered that error message has been replaced by
boost.atomic ...

cheers, tim

mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time,
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn,
burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across
the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and
everybody goes "Awww!
