Compilation of the enclosed source results in the following error messages:

ConcreteClass.cpp: In function `int main()':
ConcreteClass.cpp:34: no matching function for call to `DirectAttribute<A,
ConcreteClass.cpp:4: candidates are: DirectAttribute<A,
   double>::DirectAttribute(const DirectAttribute<A, double>&)
ConcreteClass.cpp:8:                 DirectAttribute<C, T>::DirectAttribute(T
   C::*) [with C = A, T = double]
ConcreteClass.cpp:34: warning: unused variable `ConcreteClass<A> metaA'

Apparently an attempt is made to generate a (spurious) call to DirectAttribute's default constructor. The problem disappears if DirectAttribute's private member is removed (but not the constructor's argument).
Compile the following code:

template <class C, typename T>
class DirectAttribute 
    	typedef T C::* MemberType;

    	DirectAttribute(MemberType m) : member(m) {}

    	MemberType member;

struct A
        double f;

template <class C> class ConcreteClass

template <> class ConcreteClass<A>
       ConcreteClass() : f1(&A::f) {}

    	DirectAttribute<A,double> f1;

int main()
	ConcreteClass<A> metaA;
