[Moved to DR at the October, 2015 meeting.]
The specification for determining whether a derived class is a standard-layout class, considering the types of its bases and those associated with its initial member, overlooked the case of a class whose first member is an array.
Proposed resolution (May, 2015):
Change Clause 11 [class] paragraph 7 as follows:
...M(X) is defined as follows:
If X is a non-union class type, the set M(X) is empty if X has no (possibly inherited ( 11.7 [class.derived])) non-static data members; otherwise, it consists of the type of the first non-static data member of X (where said member may be an anonymous union), X0, and the elements of M(X0).
If X is a union type, the set M(X) is the union of all M(Ui) and the set containing all Ui, where each Ui is the type of the ith non-static data member of X.
If X is a non-class type, the set M(X) is empty.
[Note: M(X) is the set of the types of all non-base-class subobjects that are guaranteed in a standard-layout class to be at a zero offset in X. —end note]
