Package: libstdc++2.9-dev
Version: 2.91.60-5

The Dec 2, 1996 draft of the "Working Paper for Draft Proposed
International Standard for Information Systems Programming Language
C++" says that the multiset must support forward iterators.  A forward
iterator's operator* must return a reference (T&).  The implementation
in libstdc++2.9-dev multiset.h returns a const reference (const T&).
This is not correct.

I believe this problem also exists in version 2.91.66-1 as the
relevant source code hasn't changed.  However, I haven't compiled
anything with the newer version.

If that's not clear, let me know.  OS details attached.

Thanks for the detailed bug reports and your interest in improving
Debian.  I'm just doing some cleanup, I am not involved with the GCC package.

The bug was rejected upstream, who marked it as "invalid" a few years
ago, and gave reasons for it.  So I guess that the best course of
action is to close this bug report now.

Please reopen if you think that the resolution is not appropriate.
