This is a compiler bug which causes the compiler to crash.  I believe the code in question is valid C++ code.

As far as I can tell, the crash happens when making a call to a templated function, which has a forward declaration, without providing an argument for a parameter whose default value is a static data member of a templated class whose template argument is indirectly specified (i.e. by forwarding the function's template parameter).
