 A bunch of my boost::regex code started crashing when I upgraded to from
 msvc8 to msvc9.

 After some frustration, I discovered that I could fix the crashes by
 defining BOOST_NO_STD_ALLOCATOR -- a flag currently defined for msvc8, but
 not msvc9.

 I'm fairly sure that these crashes are due to some subtle bug in the
 microsoft compiler -- though how said bug is related to the std allocator
 issue is unclear to me.

 I've included a small test file and msvs project file that replicate the

 I'm running against the boostpro packaged windows installers for 1.38 --
 I'm afraid I'm too pressed for time atm to compile the latest sources

 As best I can tell, there have been no changes in 1.39 or the svn that
 would address this bug, but, if it has been fixed in the latest versions,
 I apologize.
