My apologies for not submitting a more "correct" patch. If I had taken the time - or had

In any case, for auto_ptr, I did not really think about adding the 'negative' test to the

was already a test that should have caught the typo so I do not know why it didn't. I will
investigate it further.

Which would be the preference, individual patches - one per file - or one email with a bunch of
