>Description:
Initialization of static template members appears not to work.
The static initialization function is not called, unless the
static class member is actually used, but it should be
initialized regardless of possible use in the main() program
or somewhere else. SGI CC does correctly initialize the
class member.

>How-To-Repeat:
compile the following code. it should print "heyda!",
but does not.

////////////////////////////////////////////////////
#include <stdio.h>

template <class x>
struct y
{
static bool z;
static bool a() { puts("heyda!"); return true; }
};

template <class x> 
  bool y<x>::z = y<x>::a();

main()
{
y<int> alpha;

// uncomment to see that using the member triggers a functional before main()
// if (alpha.z) puts("true");
// else         puts("false");
