A common misconception invented by the authors of GCC, I guess ;-).
With MSVC, the type expression 'U C::*' deduced from a member function
pointer T (with default options) will surprisingly yields a type
incompatible to T (as member functions are implicitly __thiscall
attributed, where U C::* becomes __cdecl, because U is the type of a
freestanding function and __thiscall only exists for member functions).
