The code below fails to compile (but it does with gcc 4.8.1, clang 3.3 and icc 13.1.1) yielding the following:

error C2955: 'bar' : use of alias template requires template argument list

It seems that the main ingredients for this error two occur are:

1. A non-type template parameter ('bool' of 'foo');
2. Two levels of template aliasing ('baz' alias 'bar' which alias 'foo').

Given the error message (C2955) this bug might be a duplicate of

#include <type_traits>

template <bool>
struct foo {};

template <typename T>
using bar = foo<std::is_scalar<T>::value>;

template <typename T>
using baz = bar<T>;

Subistitute `baz` shown in the description with this:

template <typename T, typename U = bar<T>>
using baz = U;
