So I started working with Intel Thread Building Blocks and used a concurrent_queue.

By default it uses the cache_aligned_allocator. I was trying to put C++ std::string objects inside and things weren't working.

std::string is just typedef for basic_string<char, char_traits<char>, allocator<char> >

So I thought let's see what happens when I make my strings use cache_aligned_allocator instead of std::allocator.

Suddenly everything worked.

Is there a reason why my strings were corrupted unless I used cache_aligned_allocator?
