Description Dave Abrahams 2008-07-20 19:36:03 UTC
If I understand correctly, the following should not compile, because normal lookup is supposed to look backwards from the calling template's point-of-definition.  There's nothing to make foo an associated namespace of boo::X.

namespace boo
  struct X {};

namespace foo
  template <class T>
  void bar( T x )
      baz(x); // <== should fail here

  void baz(boo::X) {}

int main()
    foo::bar( boo::X() );

I think the issue is we don't disquish between an empty overloaded set and one that needs to be looked up later.
Comment 2 Jason Merrill 2009-03-03 20:58:20 UTC
I agree this is a bug: [temp.dep.candidate] says

For the part of the lookup using unqualified name lookup (3.4.1), only function declarations with external linkage from the template definition context are found.

EDG also gets this wrong currently.
