No, unfortunately.

This seems to hint in the direction that the internal RTTI mechanism is
failing. Have you tried to compile with BOOST_STATECHART_USE_NATIVE_RTTI
defined in all translation units
Please let me know whether that changes anything. Thanks.

This however does not fit with my RTTI mechanism failure theory. Even if it
did fail, after calling initiate() the range [state_begin(), state_end())
should still not be empty.
