Thanks Christian for your reply to this annoying issue. If you confirm
that the backward compatibility is broken for Boost.Serialization #1.40
to #1.47 then *Yes* I would really appreciate any king of patch to address
Looking the Boost.Serialization code, my first feeling would be to patch the
implementation of basic_binary_iarchive::load_override(class_id_type & t, int version)
for the library_version_type(5) ('5' stands for the library version for the release #1.40)
but maybe this patch is too naÃ¯ve and insufficient.
If you can send me back a patch for this issue, I'll use it ASAP.

I'm not sure but the ticket #5567 (https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/ticket/5567) seems to
address this bug.
Thanks in advance and best regards,
