Description Jim Rees 2002-02-12 22:08:11 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.12; Mac_PowerPC)

Description of problem:

In the case of a base class which is an instance of a template, if its 
destructor invokes a virtual member function which was overridden by a 
more derived class, that override is invoked instead of the base class's 
own member function.   This violates the C++ standard (12.7.3).   This 
bug appears to be specific to the 2.96-series of RedHat compilers.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

Compile and run the attached C++ program.

Actual Results:  The string "DerivedClass Close() invoked, BROKEN!" is 

Expected Results:  The string "BaseClass Close() invoked, CORRECT!" 
should be printed.

Additional info:

The bug is not present in RH6.2, is present in 7.1, and 7.2.  7.0 not tested.
