Hi Simon,

No. It is a problem with the MSVC-6 compiler supporting allocators

Interesting. The allocator is needed to use the guardedalloc of blender on
stl-containers. This was requested by Ton since he did not want to have
STL memory management mixed with Blender's internal allocator.
There were two ways to accomplish this: write my own list class (yiieeks)
or add an allocator (nice way).

What bugs me: I do not understand why MSVC-6 does not like my code.
I don't use rebind. But see thread below.
