due to absurd chaos in real life, didn't follow the boost release
schedule lately and therefore missed to merge lockfree/develop to master
before the 1.67 beta/rc ... although i knew that some bug fixes should
have landed in a release rather soon.
in case there is a 1.67.1, please use lockfree/master (38f0cfc2).

in general i like the idea of bugfix releases, as it will reduce the
number of bugs that users will see, while it still allows time-based
releases. but i know that it's additional work for the release managers ...
