We should release 3.0.3 with this fix [for min/max macros], shouldn't we?

Sounds like a good idea.

I tried compiling the Eigen2 tests and encountered failures in eigen2_alignedbox_1 and eigen2_alignedbox_2, in line 56, where it tests whether b2.contains(b1); all other tests pass. I tried to bisect and went back to the point that the Eigen2 tests were incorpored (pre-3.0.0), but the failure was still there (it's also present in the dev branch). So it doesn't really have to block a 3.0.3 release.

The test failures happen on a 32-bit Red Hat box with GCC 4.5.1 both with and without vectorization. I can reproduce them on a 64-bit Debian box with GCC 4.6.1 if I define EIGEN_TEST_X87.

The test in eigen2_alignedbox can be summarized as follows:

   AlignedBox<Vector2f> b1, b2;
   /* Initialize b1 and b2 */

So it basically is a test for floating-point equality, and my guess is that this fails due to the weird mix of double and extended precision with the x87 floating-point unit.
