Apart from the fact that this is an unreleased compiler, whether or not that
test passes (and it's *very* strict, hence the "tricky" name), depends on
the implementation of std::reference_wrapper. I suspect - but haven't had
time to check - that this is a difference between the TR1 specification and
C++11, in that if memory serves, TR1 requires inheritance from
std::unary_function, where as C++11 does not. Given that the test case
tests strict adherence to TR1, such failures should probably just be marked
up as expected. Oh wait.... this is in C++03 compilation mode? In that
case it depends on Boost's reference wrapper, which has never been TR1


PS, can we deprecate Boost.TR1 yet? ;-)
