Re: [cdt-dev] AST: replace ICPPASTBaseSpecifier

Following up on my previous post, I'm now pretty sure that this is a
bug. I filed it at
and attached a patch which seems to work for me (created by Tortoise
Git, I don't know whether you guys support this format?). However, the
changes are pretty trivial.
