+This bug sadly can not be fixed on Windows, as there is no way in .NET
+to create an object of a user defined enumeration and pass this to the
+FieldBuilder.SetConstant method.
+We will be able to work around this on our implementation of
+System.Reflection, but I can not figure out how to get this to work
+with .NET.
+I have included a descriptive message about this in the compiler now.
