The class synopsis for basic_streambuf shows a (virtual) destructor, but the standard doesn't say what that destructor does. My assumption is that it does nothing, but the standard should say so explicitly.

Proposed resolution:

Add after [streambuf.cons] paragraph 2:

virtual  ~basic_streambuf();

Effects: None.
