The difference between the two lines above is this:

  time_period t2( ptime(min_date_time), ptime(max_date_time) );

g++ is taking this as a function declaration. (I don't know whether it
should be doing so but it is.) Therefore

  time_period t2 = time_period( ptime(min_date_time),
ptime(max_date_time) );

fixes the subsequent problem with
  time_period t4(t2);

N.B. This fix compiles with boost 1.32.0, but not with boost 1.31.0. (g++ 3.3.3)

I hope this helps.
