Hi Joaquin,

You're right, the code is simple, what could possible wrong, it must be
a communication error on my part regarding what I need it to do! So
I'll try to explain what happens and why I need something else to

The insertion errors show up when you run it in a simple nested loop
(see test.cpp). After the first iteration of the outer loop it fails,
because the values for pair.second (created by the inner loop) already
exist in the indices. But every pair created by that simple nested loop
needs to be valid, it should only fail when a duplicate of the same
exact pair is inserted. The requirement is that every pair in the range
(0..N, 0..M) be valid. So that means there are N*M valid pairs (0..N,
0) (0..N, 1) (0..N, 2) etc. But the code you graciously supplied me
doesn't do that!
