FWIW, I'm getting these as well when using
boost::hash_combine(hash_value(this->member_)); to implement hashes
for my classes. We also use VS2005 with the compiler switch that
raises these warnings. My work around below is not pretty... --DD

        // Avoid warning C4267: 'argument' :
        // conversion from 'size_t' to 'unsigned int', possible loss of data
            seed, static_cast<unsigned int>(hash_value(member_))
        boost::hash_combine(seed, hash_value(member_));
