default access for class/struct bug?


Hi,

look at this:
---- snip -----
class Outer {
    private:
#if 1
        class Inner;
#else
        struct Inner;
#endif
        Inner *i;
    public:
        void pub();
};

struct Outer::Inner {
    Inner(int i) : mem(i) {}
    int mem;
};

void Outer::pub() { i = new Inner(42); }
---- snap -----

Notice how Outer::Inner is once declared with 'class', once with 'struct',
but defined with 'struct' in evry case.  The current HEAD thinks:

access.cpp:14: `Outer::Inner::Inner(int)' is private
access.cpp:20: within this context

(when it's changed to #if 0 it of course works).  Now the standard says
(if I read it correctly) (11.2), that the default access right of members
depends on the _definition_ not declaration of a class.  As this is
changed behaviour (relative to 2.95 and 3.0) I want to confirm, if it's a
bug or a feature?


Ciao,
Michael.
