We now need to decide what we're going to do with these :-)
Looking through the logs it seems there are a lot of spurious messages -
references to dereferencing a NULL pointer in shared_ptr from Boost.Test,
but when you actually look at the code I'm certain that can't happen.
Likewise in regex the following code:
std::string result(10, ' ');
Produces a NULL-pointer dereference warning inside basic_string!
So... lot's of good old fashioned brainpower required to interpret the
Probably the one thing we can't do is make these errors.
