Win32->Linux egcs-1.1.2 cross compiler temporary instance constructor with enum bug?

Hi All,

The constructor with a single enum argument (where the enum is defined
within another class) for class C is used twice in the sample code below.
The first time with an actual instance all is fine. The second time with a
temporary instance the error message:

//  tempobj.cpp: In function `void TemporaryInstance()':
//  tempobj.cpp:33: `class C Id::ID' is not a static member of `class Id'

appears. It may be that I am misusing the language but similar code does
compile cleanly on native Win32 (M$ Visual C++ 6.0) as well as compilers for
AS/400 and System/390.


The compiler version is reported as:

Reading specs from /xegcs/lib/gcc-lib/i586-linux-gnu/egcs-2.91.66/specs
gcc version egcs-2.91.66 19990314 (egcs-1.1.2 release)

This compiler was built using a Canadian cross process with the Cygwin b20.1
sources on a SuSE 6.1 Linux system.

Help!

Thanks,

Kevin.
