Yeah, that one is somewhat funny (aPrefix and m_pDoc->GetString(aPos) 
both being of type OUString, too):

*  OUString + OUString returns a OUStringConcat<OUString, OUString> (at 

*  OUString + "literal" returns some OUStringConcat<OUString, char const[N]>

*  CPPUNIT_ASSERT_EQUAL(a, b), somewhat unfortunately, requires a and b 
to be of the same type (and ultimately calls "a == b")

So CPPUNIT_ASSERT_EQUAL(OUString+OUString, OUString+OUString) happens to 
compile (and does the right thing, as OUString+OUString == 
OUString+OUString will use the implicit OUString(OUStringConcat) 
conversion ctor to end up as OUString == OUString).

But CPPUNIT_ASSERT_EQUAL(OUString+"literal", OUString+OUString) fails to 
compile due to two different types being passed to CPPUNIT_ASSERT_EQUAL.

(What fixes it and still works around the---somewhat unhelpful in this 
specific case, but often useful---loplugin::stringconstant warning, is 
"WaE: loplugin:stringconstant.")
