The same code, but used within a non-template function (func1 in the attached file) and therefore without the typename keyword, does not cause an ICE.

This also happens with the other versions of gcc on my machine:

Comment 3 Andrew Pinski 2008-10-27 01:32:09 UTC
Reduced testcase:
template<typename T> T& ensure_obj(const T&);
template <typename T>
void func2(T& t)
  typedef __typeof__(ensure_obj(t)) ttt;
  struct ttt1 
    ttt1( ttt arg0 ){}
  }  tttt ( t );
  double d = 5;

---- CUT ----
If I use decltype (which is part of the C++0x standard), it works ....
Comment 4 Andrew Pinski 2008-10-27 02:00:13 UTC
3.3 did not ICE but did give the wrong error message:
t.cc: In instantiation of `func2(T&) [with T = double]::ttt1':
t.cc:10:   instantiated from `void func2(T&) [with T = double]'
t.cc:15:   instantiated from here
t.cc:8: error: `t' was not declared in this scope
t.cc: In function `void func2(T&) [with T = double]':
t.cc:15:   instantiated from here
t.cc:10: error: no matching function for call to `func2(T&) [with T = 
t.cc:9: error: candidates are: func2(T&) [with T = double]::ttt1::ttt1(const 
   func2(T&) [with T = double]::ttt1&)

There is no use of t really at line 8 of my reduced testcase, only the use of the typedef.
Comment 5 Michael Barrientos 2009-08-28 05:12:58 UTC
I just ran into this bug too. Before I found this bug report, I did some more investigation to characterize the bug a little more. I am including my version of the reduced test case, with more commentary inline.
// Cause: Use of __typeof__ on a templated type (dependent upon template arguments of outer function/class) as the type of an argument for any function in a locally defined class crashes g++. Since this successfully typechecks, I suspect that during symbol lookup in some IR generating phase, for arguments to a function of a local class, if a __typeof__ is involved, g++ does not properly lookup symbols in the outer function/class symbol table.

template<typename ImplList> struct VertexData;

template<typename LM> void init() {            // Making non-templated function eliminates ICE. (Also ICEs for non-templated member function in a templated class.)
    VertexData<LM>* v0;                        // Making this non-template eliminates ICE. Changing LM to int eliminates ICE.
    typedef __typeof__(v0) v0_type_;           // Using VertexData<LM> instead of __typeof__(v0) eliminates ICE.  Using __decltype(v0) still causes ICE in GCC 4.3.4, but eliminates ICE in GCC 4.4
    struct MeshConditionalInit {               // Removing body of struct eliminates ICE.
        MeshConditionalInit(v0_type_& v0) { }  // Removing argument eliminates ICE. Using v0_type_ only in body and not as argument eliminates ICE.
    };                                         // ICE still occurs when used as function argument instead of constructor argument.
    MeshConditionalInit bar138(v0);

int main(int argn, char ** argv) {
ICE occurs with no special compile flags in the following standard distribution packages of GCC:
4.1.3, 4.2.4, and 4.3.3 on Ubuntu 9.04
4.0.1 and 4.2.1 on Mac OS X 10.5 (the versions with XCode)
4.4.0 on Mac OS X 10.5 (MacPorts build)

And because I got bored, here's a 140-character twitterable version of an even smaller test case (inlines the typeof into the constructor's argument, removing the typedef, which may not be legal, but definitely still causes an ICE in GCC):
/*GCC Instacrash*/ template<class T> class C;template<class U> void f() {C<U>* i;struct S{S(__typeof__(i)& i){}}s(i);}int main(){f<int>();}

Fixed for 4.5.
