[xmlblaster-devel] lexical_cast boost c++ lib

Hi Michele

Recall my trouble with RH 7.3 and lexical_cast<>

It appears to be still there after your Timestamp changes. Perhaps its a bug
with the stdc++ lib itself. I have a workaround. I suppose that RH 7.3 might
a bit old now so it may not be even worth considering a commit.
So should anyone else comes across this problem consider this fix.
