Subject: Re: [boost] [thread] error: ‘internal_mutex’ was not declared in this scope

I tried to report this issue to the user list, but I think it's still under moderation, ..and it's kind of strange error I'm getting solely by including a header like this:

int main()
return 0;

This occurs with boost version 1.48 and gcc 4.4.5 on linux

The error occurs at lines 53, 69, 88 and 94 in boost/thread/pthread/condition_variable.hpp, and the error is that 'internal_mutex' is not declared. Here below is an inline function containing the line 53.

inline void condition_variable::wait(unique_lock<mutex>& m)
    int res=0;
        thread_cv_detail::lock_on_exit<unique_lock<mutex> > guard;
        detail::interruption_checker check_for_interruption(&internal_mutex,&cond); // HERE IS THE ERROR

.I can agree with the compiler, I don't see any declaration of internal_mutex, this a spelling error, and if so, why am I the only one seeing this?? I can't find anyone else reporting something like this via google. Very strange… Any idea?

my gcc -v gives:
