This looks like intended behaviour, however the wording is misleading. In similar cases there's additional text about possible scope leaving.

I'm able to reproduce. Looks like possible bug to me; I think you should be allowed to do this.

I can't say it's a bug now until we find out if this is desired behavior, so I'm marking as "Need More Info".

A workaround is to add public member that accesses the protected one. The need to use such a workaround seems odd for me.

@auduchinok can you maybe access it via base?
