This header is not using namespace std explicitly (protobuf-2.1.0). Notice how it's gotten generated with 'const string&'.

Right, but at the top of google/protobuf/stubs/common.h is the following:

namespace google {
namespace protobuf {

using namespace std;  // Don't do this at home, kids.

That file is included via:

generated_message_reflection.h -> message_lite.h -> stubs/common.h

So there is some sort of weird namespace clashing going on. I wonder if maybe the issue is that the code in generated_message_reflection.h is in the google::protobuf::internal namespace, rather than in google::protobuf?

Good luck,
