I get an exception when using class completion if it has a TObjectList in the class(As it is using generics)

The exception says. Expected ';' but '<' found in class TMyClass.

Follow steps below to reproduce
Steps to Reproduce:
Create a class as in the below in a new unit

    TMyClass = class
          ObjColl : TObjectList<TObject>;
          procedure Ok;

Put cursor over the procedure Ok and press ctrl+shift+c and you'll get the exception.
Don't use class completion or don't use generics or just don't use Delphi? :)

This only happens if there is no member visibility defined (i.e. public,private), if you have public at the top it works.
