This msvc-10 failure for multi_array is still the old "facade_iterator_category" issue. A patch can be found here:
I know I had said that I would enter a track ticket for Boost.Iterator, but it looks like I haven't found the time to do so.

Other libraries with the same problem have fixed this by replacing "boost::random_access_traversal_tag" with "std::random_access_iterator_tag", which would also work for multi_array. I think there even exists a mail where one of the maintainers of Boost.Iterator sort of suggests this hack.
