When a type specifies a copy constructor with a defaulted argument, like:

LogMe(LogMe const&, int def=0) { }

the VC11 compiler does not elide the copy/move.

This can be observed for initialization as well as for RVO and NRVO. It affects both the copy- as well as the move-ctor.

I'm using: Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2012 for Windows Desktop / Version 11.0.51106.01 Update 1

I reproduced this bug on VS2013 (both Debug and Release mode).

I have now also checked with the current VS2013 RC compiler, and it appears the bug is the same there.
