c++ - Strange classes error

I've found strange error message for the next small piece of code:
All other compilers I tested (VC++, gcc, Compaq UNIX cxx) works well.

class Outer
{
  class Inner_A
  {
  public:
    Inner_A();
    void set();
  };
  class Inner_B: public Inner_A
  {
  public:
    Inner_B();
    void set();
  };
};
void Outer::Inner_A::set() {}

void Outer::Inner_B::set()
{
  Inner_A::set();
}

Inner_A::set();
               ^
..............  : Error: no instance of class 'Outer::Inner_A' for member
'Outer::Inner_A::set'
--- errorlevel 1

But here 'Outer::Inner_A::set'  is only call to base class, it is not
instance!

Thanks, Slava

You're right, it does look like a bug.
