Hi,

Thank you. I added it to the test. I also added

I added your patch, but commented out the stride1/stride2 functionality in ublas_vector2.hpp.
In case the stride1/stride2 functionality is important, free accessor functions dense_matrix_stride1 and dense_matrix_stride2 should be created instead, where matrix_traits<M>::leading_dimension(m) / 1 would be returned, dependent on matrix_traits<M>::ordering_type.
