I mentioned earlier that the same code works just fine on Visual Studio
2008. However, Boost is supposed to be portable, I think this also applies
to older compilers. We don't all have the luxury of working on the latest &
greatest. I was hoping the author would look at this, maybe fix any issues,
and provide a patch. I've tried debugging this issue myself but I just
don't understand boost's internals.
