This only happens when you're declaring a static array of the 
forward-referenced struct.  It also happens if Yuiop is a union, but not 
if it's a class.

Also, it seems to happen only if the declaration is within a class, 
struct or union.  Declarations at module or function level don't show 
the bug.
