This should be fixed, and is an error in the current implementation.

You can test this with a derived streambuf with a sputc member. I didn't
do that, but it should probably be done.

As for the rest, it is an error with _M_out_end being set incorrectly.
Petur's right, if epptr() == pptr(), overflow, but that should not be
the case for the seconf sputc.

 // there is no condition in the standard that requires this.  
 // in fact, this should not be true.  
 assert(dsbuf.pub_epptr() == dsbuf.pub_pptr()); 

 // the standard says nothing about a mandated call to overflow here.
 called = false;
 assert(called);	// 20030212 fail

Don't know if this is that helpful.
