I have checked the offending code and it's always like this:

#if defined(_MSC_VER) && (_MSC_VER > 1310) && (_MSC_VER < 1500)

So it's already always std::remove in all platforms except Windows. I
will build the code with Visual Studio 2008 this evening and try to
see why can't also be std::remove there. That would be perfect and fix
the porting issue.
