 When using <boost/iostreams/copy.hpp> in VS 2013 Update 2, I've got

 boost\iostreams\copy.hpp(128): warning C4244: 'argument' : conversion from
 'std::streamsize' to 'int', possible loss of data

 I'm passing `ifstream` through `copy` to Poco SHA1, and the files are more
 than 2 GB long. It is not easy to tell if hashes for the files are
 correct, but from source code it seems that they are not.

 The strange row "size_(buffer_size) // Cast for SunPro 5.3." looks like it
 was made deliberately to fix some other bug.

 Trying to hotfix this bug I run into a problem, that the type should be
 std::streamsize and std::size_t simultaneosly. size_t is required by
 std::allocator::allocate. I've found similar problem here:


 Unfortunately I don't understand the code well enough to workaround that
 allocator parameter issue.
