Yes, I just changed 
	typedef typename super::pointer pointer;
	typedef ValueT* pointer;

and it work. Before it was referring to 
	bidirectional_iterator<ValueT, ptrdiff_t>::pointer
which is 
	std::iterator<std::bidirectional_iterator_tag, Ty,
which with the STL of VC++2005 is
	template<class _Category,
	class _Ty,
	class _Diff = ptrdiff_t,
	class _Pointer = _Ty *,
	class _Reference = _Ty&>
		struct iterator
			: public _Iterator_base

	{	// base type for all iterator classes
	typedef _Category iterator_category;
	typedef _Ty value_type;
	typedef _Diff difference_type;
	typedef _Diff distance_type;	// retained
	typedef _Pointer pointer;
	typedef _Reference reference;

So it is just doing manually what the compiler should do.

I don't think this will break with any existing STL implementation, someone
should commit a patch at least as temporary fix.
