std::string name mangling

I have been debugging LLDB trying to find where the name mangling is getting messed up during eval parsing of std::string::c_str() and have traced it into CXXNameMangler::mangleStandardSubstitution in ItaniumMangle.cpp which is part of clangs AST module. In mangleStandardSubstitution it is testing the identifier to see if it is a ClassTemplateSpecializationDecl equivalent to std::basic_string<char,std::char_traits<char>,std::allocator<char>> so that it can substitute the short form mangled string "Ss". This check fails on the second template argument test where it is checking if it is a char specialization of char_traits.

if (!isCharSpecialization(TemplateArgs[1].getAsType(), "char_traits"))
         return false;

I have dumped the declaration to verify it is the correct identifier:
class basic_string definition

-TemplateArgument type 'char'
-TemplateArgument type 'struct std::char_traits<char>'
-TemplateArgument type 'class std::allocator<char>'

I also dumped the template arguments separately:
char identifier
struct std::char_traits<char> identifier
class std::allocator<char> identifier

I am not familiar enough yet with the Clang architecture to understand why this check is failing. Any suggestions on how to track this down would be appreciated.
