Sigh. I would have hoped that your compiler would have rejected the code
out of hand.

A translation unit shall not #define or #undef names lexically identical to
keywords, to the identifiers listed in Table 4, to the attribute-tokens
described in 9.11, or to the identifiers expects or ensures, except that
the names likely and unlikely may be defined as function-like macros (14.3).

'new' is a keyword listed in Table 4.
