#7876: container::map fails with unions
 Reporter: p.brockamp@… | Owner: igaztanaga
     Type: Bugs | Status: new
Milestone: To Be Determined | Component: container
  Version: Boost 1.52.0 | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: container map union |

 At least in boost 1.52.0 there seems to be a problem with container::map
 and the use of unions (and I suppose the problem might exist with similar
 types like container::set, etc., though I haven't tested it). Try this
 code snippet to reproduce:

 #include <map>
 #include <boost/container/map.hpp>

 union TU {};
 void boostMapFail(void) {
   std::map <unsigned int, TU> stdTest;
   boost::container::map<unsigned int, TU> boostTest;
   TU u;
   stdTest[5U] = u; // Does compile :-)
   boostTest[5U] = u; // Fails miserably :-(

 This fails under and MSVC2005 and GCC 4.3:

 boost/move/move.hpp(254) : error C2569: 'TU' : enum/union cannot be used
 as a base class

 GCC 4.3:
 boost/move/move.hpp:254: error: base type 'TU' fails to be a struct or
 class type

 On the contrary, using std::map instead of boost::container::map *does*
 compile without a hitch, so I would expect boost to behave identically.

 Best regards
