Reading specs from /usr/local/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-linux-gnu/3.0/specs
Configured with: ../gcc-3.0/configure --enable-threads
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.0
>Description:
Compiling the attached file gives the following error:

test.cpp: In member function `TYPE CList<TYPE>::InvalidValue() [with TYPE = 
   int]':
test.cpp:11:   instantiated from `TYPE CList<TYPE>::RemoveHead() [with TYPE = int]'
test.cpp:39:   instantiated from here
test.cpp:14: warning: return to non-pointer type `int' from NULL
test.cpp:14: warning: argument to non-pointer type `int' from NULL

It seems to me that gcc is checking the wrong function and therefore emitting
an incorrect warning - stepping through the running program we never call
TYPE CList<TYPE>::InvalidValue(), only TYPE CTypeList<TYPE>::InvalidValue()
which is correct I believe.
>How-To-Repeat:
Compile the attached file with gcc-3.0
