Thanks again Joaquin - AFAICT the only occurrences of
'constant_time_size' are within libboost itself. In fact for 'class
list_impl' it seems to be defined as a constant:-

     static const bool constant_time_size = ConstantTimeSize;

However, I've realised that the problem I reported initially (today)
does seem to be connected to DLL linkage somehow. For example, this
code in a source file compiles okay:-

     #include <boost/intrusive/list.hpp>
     class Point : public boost::intrusive::list_base_hook<> {

whereas this seemingly minor change:-

     #include <boost/intrusive/list.hpp>
     class __declspec(dllexport) Point : public
boost::intrusive::list_base_hook<> {

will immediately invoke this compile-time assertion:-
"BOOST_STATIC_ASSERT(( (int)hooktags::link_mode == (int)auto_unlink ));"
- i.e. the message I reported earlier...

So (presumably ?) 'boost::intrusive::list_base_hook<>' can't be used in
a class that'll get exported from a DLL?
