Here the corresponding patch for the src/python/py_nonblocking.cpp file (I can also send a pull-request over github if desired).

Explicitly converting optional to bool in those two cases (there are two test_all calls) fixes the issue, is it possible to get this patched before the 1.56.0 release?

This might be a c++11/14 specific bug (I compile with clang-trunk using c++1y).

Any ideas?
