new(&m_aKey[nIndex]) Wrapper<TKey>(key);

 //The assert on operator& usually indicates a bug. If this is really

return &p;

Which VC version are you running? In my copy of VC7.1 and VC8,
SetAtIndex (well, actually, InternalSetAtIndex) looks differently:

 void InternalSetAtIndex(int nIndex, const TKey& key, const TVal& val)
  new(m_aKey + nIndex) Wrapper<TKey>(key);
  new(m_aVal + nIndex) Wrapper<TVal>(val);

This neatly bypasses the pitfall of an overloaded operator&. With the
code you show, I'm afraid you are sadly out of luck.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead. -- RFC 1925
