gcc-open64 seems to be having exactly the same problem.

The offending line is
    ref_type operator[]( keyword<unique_id,true> ) const {
return m_erased ? nil_t::inst().any_cast<ref_type>() : m_value; }

What happens if you change it to
ref_type operator[]( keyword<unique_id,true> ) const {
    if(m_erased) {
        return nil_t::inst().any_cast<ref_type>();
    } else {
        return m_value;

In Christ,
