Thank you for the fix Jens :)!

Just as note: I do not see a compilation problem on a specific old linux distribution as a critical bug for release of Build 18 - first of all because it would not be a problem for the ubuntu maintainers to provide an updated package of boost and second of all, because (like with the boost packages) they won't compile Widelands Build18 to their old (although its LTS) version.

But that's just a side note and surely a matter of taste ;)

So thank you again for the bug fix :)

Merged the bugfix branch. You are right with the Importance, I am going to correct that too. ;-)

Thanks for your fix, Jens. Fwiw, I just tried it on Ubuntu 10.04 and it builds/runs fine again there too. Looks like this issue was a lot easier than what I feared when I saw the forum post.
