Title:
  Using type_info::name() wrong

Status in Zorba - The XQuery Processor:
  New

Bug description:
  In class_serializer.h,  the definition of the CHECK_CLASS_NAME macro:

    #define CHECK_CLASS_NAME(class_name) \
    if (ar.is_serializing_out() && !ar.is_serialize_base_class()) \
    { \
      assert(strstr(typeid(*this).name(), #class_name)); \
    }

  The string returned by type_info::name() is implementation-dependent
  and has no guarantees about its content or format. In this case, you
  can not legitimately test to see, for some class type C, if
  typeid(C).name() contains the string literal "C".

  However, you can legitimately compare two name() strings for equality.
  The above should be rewritten as:

      assert(::strcmp(typeid(*this).name(), typeid(class_name).name())
  == 0);
