Read the release notes for 3.4.x.  It says the code is invalid C++.
Basically namelookup rules in templates are special in that the normal
rules apply for non-dependent names but it is applied twice to dependent
names (this is a very over-simplification because there are other rules
which cause the rule to apply only once).
