You're right, the pp-prefix should be fine in this case. I sounds like
something isn't passed right -- it has been a while since I've checked
the details of packed storage, but have you tried column_major ordering
for the symmetric matrix?

ublas::symmetric_matrix<double, ..., column_major >

If this happens to make things work, it is a bug in the bindings. In
that case, it sounds like it is missing a static assertion / check for
this case.
