[Ace-users] [ace-users] Problem compiling with ACE when including ace/Timer_Heap.h

Yes, I don't know why Ubuntu packages such an old version, but then  
again other distros don't even seem to package ACE at all in main  
repositories. It'd be awesome for Ubuntu to contain the latest ACE  
possible. Maybe I'll have to investigate who does ACE packaging and  
why it's so behind in version number. I'll try and undefine the  
timeout symbol and see if that takes care of it. Thanks.
