Package: clang-3.6
Version: 1:3.6.2~svn240577-1~exp1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

*** Reporter, please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

I' m trying to use boost hana, in particular this example:

#include <boost/hana.hpp>
#include <boost/any.hpp>
#include <cassert>
#include <string>
#include <typeindex>
#include <typeinfo>
#include <utility>
namespace hana = boost::hana;
//! [cases]
template <typename T>
auto case_ = [](auto f) {
  return hana::make_pair(hana::type_c<T>, f);
struct default_t;
auto default_ = case_<default_t>;
//! [cases]
//! [process]
template <typename Any, typename Default>
auto process(Any&, std::type_index const&, Default& default_) {
  return default_();
template <typename Any, typename Default, typename Case, typename ...Rest>
auto process(Any& a, std::type_index const& t, Default& default_,
             Case& case_, Rest& ...rest)
  using T = typename decltype(+hana::first(case_))::type;
  return t == typeid(T) ? hana::second(case_)(*boost::unsafe_any_cast<T>(&a))
                        : process(a, t, default_, rest...);
//! [process]
//! [switch_]
template <typename Any>
auto switch_(Any& a) {
  return [&a](auto ...cases_) {
    auto cases = hana::make_tuple(cases_...);
    auto default_ = hana::find_if(cases, [](auto const& c) {
      return hana::first(c) == hana::type_c<default_t>;
    static_assert(default_ != hana::nothing,
      "switch is missing a default_ case");
    auto rest = hana::filter(cases, [](auto const& c) {
      return hana::first(c) != hana::type_c<default_t>;
    return hana::unpack(rest, [&](auto& ...rest) {
      return process(a, a.type(), hana::second(*default_), rest...);
//! [switch_]

In order to test it I develop this simple class:

struct X{

    template <typename T>
    void add(T a)

    template <typename F>
    void map(F f)
        for (auto& e : v)
                case_<int>([f](int c) -> void { f(c); }),
                case_<double>([f](double c) -> void { f(c); }),
                case_<std::string>([f](std::string c) -> void { f(c); }),
                default_([]() -> void { throw std::logic_error("invalid type"); })

    std::vector<boost::any> v;

and when I try to compile this code:

    X x;

    x.map([](auto e){
        std::cout << e << std::endl;

I get the crash!
