Exactly, that's the bit I can't understand. How do
I do that? It's not a stupid question, I've been banging my
head against it for 2 weeks but the documentation is full of
examples far more complex than I need and I lose myself in
the syntax (I'm a half-newbie to C++, which is not helping).

So it's probably due to using "vertex_index" to get edge
weights right? In any case, let's see if it still occurs
when we figure out the right property_map. If so, then I
can paste the entire error (it's very long and, to me,
