As a consequence of declaring a copy constructor, the compiler won't automatically generate a default constructor (unless the compiler supports C++11 and the generation is forced by using the default keyword).

See[^] for more info.

Whether this will cause an issue depends on how the class is used.

Fascinating, I hadn't picked up that subtle change in C++11. You really do learn something new every day around here. +5
