strstream::rdbuf has the same issue with a missing const_cast on &sb.

Somewhat amusingly, istrstream::rdbuf and ostrstream::rdbuf got this right, but each with a different style (see issue 252).

Proposed resolution:

This wording is relative to N4750.

  1. Change D.13.5.4 [depr.strstream.oper] p1 as indicated:

    strstreambuf* rdbuf() const;

    -1- Returns: const_cast<strstreambuf*>(&sb).
