Clang is correct, per C+0x [temp.explicit]p2:

  If the explicit instantiation is for a member function, a member class or a
static data member of a class template specialization, the name of the class
template specialization in the qualified-id for the member name shall be a

C++98/03 has the same restriction, but nobody else seems to diagnose it.

I've downgraded the error to a warning, since it's likely to be a portability
issue, and tweaked the diagnostic a to note that typedefs aren't allowed here.
The example code is still invalid, though :)

"Fix" in Clang r106109.
