#6867: Unclear behavior of parameter 'max_size'
 Reporter: edupuis | Owner: edupuis
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: To Be Determined | Component: pool
  Version: Boost 1.49.0 | Severity: Cosmetic
 Keywords: |
 When constructing a pool, a 'max_size' parameter can be given. If non
 zero, the documentation states that the pool will not allow more than
 'max_chunks' at once.

 However, this restriction is not taken into account in function
 ordered_malloc(n) :

 boost::pool<> p(sizeof(int), 16, 16);

 void *ptr = p.ordered_malloc(32); // Succeeds

 Either the documentation should be precised, either the illustrated
 allocation should fail.
