The difference is in the actual strategies that kick in.
I explained it in my last comment:
https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/ticket/5954#comment:3
So, yes, my patch does not fix the problem, but sheds some light where
is the bug. Though, I'm having problems with finding out why the
different strategy is generated for simplify, not having enough time to
dig it now.
p.s. Please, take care to respond to the mailing list too. I added ggl
address to my response here.
