Yes I noticed this as well during my testing for a patch. In C++03 and
C++11 `fusion::tuple` inherits from `fusion::vector`, so they are
functionally identical but unique types. So copying/moving from tuple to
vector (or vice-versa) triggers the "copy from another sequence type"
code. You found a bug in that code for C++11, and while trying to
identify a fix I found a similar bug in the C++03 version, and issues
with the C++11 list too.

Joel has [merged my fix][0] for your particular use case, and I hope to
continue working on a fixes for the other cases too.
