There is a serious bug in the mapped_vector_of_mapped_vector spare
matrix type. Rows containing only zero elements are not treated
correctly in prod(). The following code should give a vector that
contains only 1 in the last element. Instead prod() gives a vector
containing 1 in each element. In debug mode this bug is found by the

Check failed in file boost/boost/numeric/ublas/detail/
vector_assign.hpp at line 371:
detail::expression_type_check (v, cv)

The bug appears in Boost 1.33 as well as in the CVS version
