Thanks for pointing this out. The issue has been fixed in git master

Nice to hear you like to contribute to umbrello :-)

Not sure if you have knowledge or interest on working with ast parsers:
If so there is a outstanding request to extend c++ import with c++11
support at Parser testcases
has been added recently

Quick importing files could be performed with umbrello in two ways:
1. Using gui on linux
1.1 start umbrello from command line
1.2 open debug window if not already open (right click on the right side
of the menu 'help' entry)
1.3 enable 'cppparser'
1.4 right click entry "Logical view" in the tree view and select "import
umbrello should print several c++ import related debug messages on stderr

2. Using command line
2.1 run umbrello with command line parameter --import-files  e.g.
umbrello --import-files
2. 2 c++ parser related debug messages are disabled by default. To
increase c++ parser debug level by default you may rename all
occurrences of DEBUG_REGISTER_DISABLED in umbrello source subdir
lib/cppparser/ with DEBUG_REGISTER and recompile.
