The code below demonstrates how the use of decltype causes premature template instantiation. In this case, it causes an endless recursion of instantiations that causes the compiler to run out of heap space. The equivalent construct that does not use decltype does not cause this problem.

Hi -

After discussing this issue with the developer for the feature, he believes that fixing this case would require significant changes to the way the compiler processes templates, and that such a change would be beyond the scope of our upcoming service pack. We will be considering fixing this bug in a future major release.
