The function type_info::before returns type int.
The standard http://www.open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/papers/2005/n1905.pdf defines tis function in the class type_info as bool!

Thanks for reporting this bug. We've fixed it, so that type_info::before() returns bool as required by C++98/03 and C++0x, and the fix will be available in VC11.

If you have any further questions, feel free to E-mail me at stl@microsoft.com .
