If I type a string literal that is also a template class name, and I follow the typename with a '<', intellisense will pop up to help me complete the template declaration.

Since string literals are not compiled as code, I don't know if intellisense does this by design or if this is a bug.
It can be useful in certain circumstances.

A clarification on the bug resolution: while the bug repros in 2005, it does not repro in Orcas, so you can considered it fixed for Visual Studio 2008.

Thanks for your feedback!

I just got a followup from a Microsoft engineer, and this bug is already fixed in Orcas b2.
It is reproducable in VC2005 SP1 tough.
