Subject: [boost] Could the custom allocator for flyweight hashed_factory be the boost::interprocess::allocator?

I want to use boost::flyweight to do the dedupilcation of
boost::interprocess::basic_string object. I wrote a small test program for
that. In my program:
The flyweight works fine with the interprocess::basic_string which uses the
interprocess::allocator only with the default hashed_factory. The default
hashed_factory is ideal except that it uses std::allocator instead of
interprocess::allocator. I followed the
of a custom hash_factory which can change its allocator to the interprocess
one, but then got insanely long compiler error that is super hard to

Right now, I don't know if only use interprocess::allocator in
interprocess::basic_string alone will make the flyweight object be shared
by multiple process, guess probably not... Then wonder whether that I
didn't use the right syntax for custom hashed_factory or flyweight is
compatible with boost::interprocess at all... If it is compatible, what's
the right syntax for that? How shall I change my code?

Below is a test program attached. The code could compile now with
flyweight's default hashed_factory. The goal is to make it compile with
ShmStringHashedFactory which use the interprocess allocator.
