I tried my copy of GCC 4.6, and get a similar problem. It does not seem
to related to Boost.Graph at all, though; I get the same result (use of
uninitialized value) with counting_iterators that are created directly
(CSR graph vertex_iterators are counting_iterators). I changed the
subject line to emphasize the Boost.Iterator issue. Here is a
trimmed-down program that has similar problems, even with optimization

#include <boost/iterator/reverse_iterator.hpp>
#include <boost/iterator/counting_iterator.hpp>
#include <iostream>

int main() {
   boost::counting_iterator<int> ie(2);
   boost::reverse_iterator<boost::counting_iterator<int> > rib(ie);
   std::cout << *rib << std::endl;
   return 0;
