A code browser, ehh? Same was with me with MSVC on windows, it throwed me
into stdio.h when looking for size_t. 

However I've learned not to trust code browsers, they are convinient in a
way, but in some cases the browser see's things different than the compiler
does :( One example we've here, if you have someting multiple defined locally in
your project that's absolute no problem for c. But the code browser wil only
throw you to the definition he has seen first. 
(If he's a little better he shows you a list of multiple ones, and you've to
choose the "right" one...)

Especially with static functions and with conditional compiling a
code-browser can direct one really wrong in some rare cases....

for me when searching the whole header-directory for "size_t;" it showed up
to be defined in nearly every header :)
