Volker, thanks for the report and the time spent on the patch.
Unfortunately I am very reluctant to accept significant cpp changes for
something that should be purely solvable by appropriate header file
inclusion. So hopefully when this is examined more closely the "right"
fix will become evident. Also there may be some recent uses of atomic
functions that have now been reversed and so might fix some of the
And Volker is right that we should have a no PCH build as part of JPRT
testing. How to do that is another matter :(
Anyone have a tool or tip/trick for generating a tree of the includes
for a given cpp file?
