>Description:
	Given the following program (which lacks typename in line 12)

#include <vector>

using namespace std;

template <class T>
class TCONJUNCTION
    {
    typedef int iterator;
public:
    void get()
        {
        for( /*typename*/ TCONJUNCTION<T>::iterator i = 1; // line 12
             i != 10;
             i++ )
            { }
        }
    };

	the new parser issues the following hard error:

	  x.cc: In member function `void TCONJUNCTION<T>::get()':
	  x.cc:12: error: expected `;'
  	  x.cc:13: error: `i' has not been declared
	  x.cc:14: error: `i' has not been declared

	This is correct per se, but confusing for the average user,
	especially as previous versions of GCC did _not_ issue the
	"implicit typename" warning, or any warning for that matter,
	even with -ansi -pedantic -W -Wall.

>How-To-Repeat:
	Save program as x.cc and `g++ x.cc`.
