That would be a compiler bug, please submit it such if you are able to, in
the mean time I will patch a workaround into the source.

[ Note - the reason it's a compiler bug, is that in the code:

inline match_flags& operator&=(match_flags& m1, match_flags m2)

{ m1 = m1&m2; return m1; }

The result of m1&m2 is type match_flags, and *not* int as the compiler
suggests, because of the earlier defined operator:

inline match_flags operator&(match_flags m1, match_flags m2)

{ return static_cast<match_flags>(static_cast<boost::int32_t>(m1) &
static_cast<boost::int32_t>(m2)); }

- end note ]

Yes! I can't patch the source unless you give me all the available
information. Incidently it might be easiest to work around this by
including sunpro in the workaround above that reads:


in match_flags.hpp

If you want to provide one - I don't have access to that compiler.

OK a couple of data points: the library is passing all it's tests with IBM
C++ on Itanium, so I would be surprised if this is 64-bit issue as such,
it's more likely to be a compiler or platform specific issue. As I asked
before what precisely is failing? What is the general protection fault?
Where in the code does it occur (stack trace?) and so on. I'm going to need
a lot more information before I can make any suggestions, and probably
you're going to have to do some debugging as well...
