Sorry - I should have included compiler info. This was with VS2005 (VC8). I
will also be testing with g++ 4.1.2, but haven't had a chance yet.

Actually, if it works with g++, or I successfully perform the extract /
namespace rename with VC9, that's satisfactory for my work project needs
(with 1.44 final release, of course). But it's probably worthwhile tracking
down my failures, for other potential users, and general robustness.

Do you want to perform some deeper analysis of the problem?
