True, that's a known bug. And since you're the second person who run in it, it
worth fixing right now. As Rene already mentioned, using just gcc won't work
in all cases, so I've implemented the "right" fix. The fix and the test are
now in CVS. Could you try agian?

BTW, does anyone know how to force C++ compile or C compile for MSVC?
V1 toolset does not explicitly say that and I don't have MSVC handy at the
