I'll be happy to have solved someone else problems to not talk about the fact that an issue
solved in an old version of sofwtare can still exist in new version but triggered instead
by something else than my own test case. Don't you agree?
That's why I'm a bit disappointed about how the gcc bug was closed with the same: "works with
new version" but after all 4.4.3 is not maintaned.
With boost instead for version 1.52 I can read that GCC 4.4.3 is tested as primary compiler.
