problem with a structure nested within a template

Hi All,

I'm perplexed and hoping to obtain some guru insight from the community.

The code below is a snippet from some existing code that compiles with
many other compilers, but not gcc (I tried both 3.4.4 and 4.1.1

The problem line is:  C1<U>::Node*    pNode;

and the error is:  error: expected `;' before '*' token

If I use a concrete type (e.g., C1<int>), all is well.

Thanks in advance,

template<typename T>
class C1

   struct Node
      T*     prev;
      T*     next;

   Node   myNode;

template<typename U>
class C2

   U                       someObj;
   C1<U>::Node*    pNode;

int main()
   C1<int> c1;

   C2<int> c2;

   return 0;
