If I define a class which derives from ostream, I can construct and use it as an output stream without any problems.  However, if I also #include <fstream> in the same file, an exception gets thrown during the construction of my class.  The code given below demonstrates this.  The exception gets thrown on line 24 of /opt/gcc-3.0-010424/include/g++-v3/bits/basic_ios.tcc, during the call to use_facet<__numput_type>(_M_ios_locale) in basic_ios<_CharT, _Traits>::init(basic_streambuf<_CharT, _Traits>* __sb)

#include <iostream>

// Uncomment this and an exception gets thrown when mystream gets
// constructed
// #include <fstream>

using std::ostream;
using std::cout;
using std::endl;

class NDumpContext : public ostream

	NDumpContext() : ostream(cout.rdbuf())


	virtual ~NDumpContext()


	NDumpContext(ostream& rhs)
		: ostream(rhs.rdbuf())


	virtual void Flush()


int main()
	NDumpContext mystream(cout);
	cout << "Output to cout" << endl;
	mystream << "Output to mystream" << endl;
