Consider the following code:

    template<class T, class F>           struct X {};
    template<class T, class F, T F::* m> struct Y {};
    struct Foo {
    	int member;
    	typedef X<int, Foo>               x_type; // works well
    	typedef Y<int, Foo, &Foo::member> y_type; // ERROR

    typedef Y<int, Foo, &Foo::member> y_type2; // OK

Why does compiler generate error? (VS2008)

Hi: this is a known issue with Visual C++ (it is not new with Visual C++ 2010) - given the nature of the issue and the complexity of the fix we decided not to address it for the current release but we do have plans to address it in a future release.
