Some C++ code

When compiling the attached sample, clang crash.

This is due to an infinite recursion in SemaExpr.cpp, line 3818.

      // Recurse as an -> access.
      IsArrow = true;
      return LookupMemberExpr(R, BaseExpr, IsArrow, OpLoc, SS,
                              ObjCImpDecl, HasTemplateArgs);

Unfortunately, IsArrow is already true, so it try again with the same
parameters, fall in the same error handler, try again, and so on until it
