C++ - basic_string - Visual Studio - Intellisense issues

Here is my 'custom' implementation of basic_string:

typedef std::basic_string<char, std::char_traits<char>, boost::pool_allocator<char> > RString;

Whenver I perform something like...

RString Str = AnyString;

The part of intellisense where you hover your mouse over a variable to see its type quits working.

Note:
- I #include <string>
- The intellisense that brings up a list of members quits working if I use the + operator of string

Any idea how to solve these problems?

Thanks

I couldn't reproduce the issue that you addressed.
>>typedef std::basic_string<char, std::char_traits<char>, boost::pool_allocator<char> > RString;
>>Whenver I perform something like...
>>RString Str = AnyString;
You can refer to this question and find if it helps.

Ya, it comes and goes... who really knows how MS intellisense works?

From what I've read they've pretty much trashed any hope of it working properly in VS2003, and that it is much improved in 2005.
