I have finally found the issue. signals2::slot has 2 constructors:
slot<F>(const F &f)
slot<BindArgs...>(const BindArgs &...args)
MSVC12 always chooses the variadic constructor, so calling it with
boost::bind(...) always tries to call boost::bind(boost::bind(...)).
If I understand the example in 188.8.131.52.8 of the January 2012 working draft
correctly, it should be the other way around, shouldn't it?
