[Bug c++/18195] New: Two-stage lookup doesn't work correctly with namespaces


With the following test program, I get compiler errors with g++-3.4 on both 
i386-linux and x86_64-linux (but not with g++-3.3). 
 
namespace A { 
  class B { }; 
 
  B* transform(B*); 
 
  template <class T> void transform_in_place(T*& p) { p = A::transform(p); } 
 
  class C { }; 
 
  C* transform(C*); 
}; 
 
namespace A { 
  class D { }; 
 
  D* transform(D*); 
}; 
 
void foo() { 
  A::B *b; 
  A::C *c; 
  A::D *d; 
 
  A::transform_in_place(b); 
  A::transform_in_place(c); 
  A::transform_in_place(d); 
} 
 
The exact error messages are: 
 
ns2.cpp: In function `void A::transform_in_place(T*&) [with T = A::C]': 
ns2.cpp:25:   instantiated from here 
ns2.cpp:6: error: cannot convert `A::C*' to `A::B*' for argument `1' to `A::B* 
A::transform(A::B*)' 
ns2.cpp: In function `void A::transform_in_place(T*&) [with T = A::D]': 
ns2.cpp:26:   instantiated from here 
ns2.cpp:6: error: cannot convert `A::D*' to `A::B*' for argument `1' to `A::B* 
A::transform(A::B*)' 
 
If I remove the namespace A everywhere, then this file compiles without 
errors.  According to my understanding of the section "Name lookup" under "C++ 
Misunderstandings" in the info file, this code should be correct since the 
call to transform depends on a template parameter, so the lookup should happen 
at instantiation time. 
 
(This is a condensed case of problems I'm getting with various versions of 
gtk--, after correcting other things.)
