No, I can confirm there are issues, I've just fixed one in Regex (needs
to define BOOST_REGEX_NO_EXTERNAL_TEMPLATES in boost/regex/config.hpp
when building with Oracle C++).

There are many in Log and Thread libraries that look like the compiler
isn't coping with explicit conversion operators well.

If you have fixes for these or any others, can you please submit bug
reports ( or pull-requests (on Github)?

Many thanks, John.
