Discussion:

N3290 20.5.4.6 [replacement.functions]/p3 says:

The program's definitions shall not be specified as inline.

This seems to permit declarations of replacement allocation functions that are specified as inline so long as they aren't used. This behavior seems more like a bug than a feature, I propose that we do the following:

The program's definitionsdeclarations shall not be specified as inline.

Proposed resolution:

This wording is relative to N3797.

  1. Modify 20.5.4.6 [replacement.functions]/3 as indicated:

    -3- The program's definitions are used instead of the default versions supplied by the implementation (18.6). Such replacement occurs prior to program startup (3.2, 3.6). The program's definitionsdeclarations shall not be specified as inline. No diagnostic is required.
