Private Thread assignment

Trivial (usage) bug in IceUtil/Thread.h... Copy ctor and assignment should be private, but are currently public :-
class ICE_UTIL_API Thread : virtual public IceUtil::Shared
    /// ...
    Thread(const Thread&);		// Copying is forbidden
    void operator=(const Thread&);	// Assignment is forbidden

So the following compiles but raises linker errors :-
#include <Ice/Ice.h>
class MyThread : public IceUtil::Thread {
	virtual void run() { }
int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
	MyThread t1, t2;
	t1 = t2;			// should raise compile error
	MyThread t3(t2);	// should raise compile error
	return 0;
