Hi All,
        When I had sent along the type masking bug reports I never
even thought that such an obscure thing could be part of a standard
API ... (says a lot about the designers)...

public Calendar Calendar

This requires the compiler to recognize between the type 'Calendar' and
the variable 'Calendar' in the code ..

So cscc barfs on

public virtual Calendar[] OptionalCalendars

Later on...

Similar situation on System/Type.cs:955

public static Binder DefaultBinder
        defaultBinder = new DefaultBinder();


PS: shall we fix the compiler or the library ... ?
The difference between insanity and genius is measured by success
