This is a MS Visual C++ extension indeed. In ISO C++ it is not possible
(even not parsable) to call a constructor directly in a member access

Since there is no conflicting other meaning in ISO C++ we should support
this syntax too. Thank you for reporting this extension.

For now you can try to parse your application using the
--skip-bodies-non-prj command line option (also usable in the config
file). This causes the parser to skip all function/method bodies in
files that do not belong to your project (e.g. system include files).
