Reference Manual Explanation
1729 Initializer inversion detected for member 'Symbol' -- In a constructor initializer the order of evaluation is determined by the member order not the order in which the initializers are given. At least one of the initializers was given out of order. Was there a reason for this? Did the programmer think that by changing the order that he/she would affect the order of evaluation? Place the initializers in the order of their occurrence within the class so that there can be no mistaken assumptions. [12, Item 13]
