You must have meant
assert(ea.tarr.ptr != eb.tarr.ptr); // line 12
Indeed, .ptr are unexpectedly the same.
Yes... this is a more precise comparison :)

To save time to others, note that 'tarr' is a static member
that ends up being shared by two Typedef instantiations.
Yup. They are shared by two Typedef instantiations with different
The question is two-fold:
Would it help to alter the init value of the Typedef?
If yes, how to alter it?
If no, is this a bug?
