Poor implementation of namespaces is (I think) a known bug with g++. You
might be best changing your compiler - I think you can do this with RHIDE,
can't you? - but I'm fairly certain Microsoft Visual C++ is also buggy,
just in different ways, not least in that it defaults to Microsoft
Proprietary Standard Classes and has all but the most limited support for
the actual "standard" classes.
