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
this issue.

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 naïve 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 ( seems to
address this bug.

Thanks in advance and best regards,
