Hi Chistophe

I have tried in the little example the change you have suggested :

  struct LogDefer
    typedef int deferring_action;
    template <class EVT,class FSM,class SourceState,class TargetState>
    void operator()(EVT const& evt,FSM& fsm,SourceState&
src_,TargetState& ) const
      std::cout << fsm.m_SmName << " DEFERED: " << evt.getName() << std::endl;

but it did not help for me .... ?. :(. Sill stack overflow.
