+Summary: Incompatible lookup when namespace name = class name
+Description of Problem:
+See example.  If there are two classes (A and B) in different namespaces, 
+but with the same base (lets call it "whatever").  Class B has namespace 
+whatever.B and if class A wants to use class B and has a "using 
+whatever.B" then it requires to reference class B as B.B (an error will 
+occur if you just use B).  In mono, the compiler gets confused by B.B and 
+expects B to be in whatever.B.B.B but in .Net B.B is required because 
+otherwise it will think B is a namespace and expect a class (and give said 
+Sounds complicated, but look at the code and play around with it.  It 
+compiles fine in .Net but in mono it can't find the class.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. compile code in .Net and witness result
+2. compile code in mono and witness result
+Actual Results:
+Test.Variable.Variable does not contain a definition for "Variable"
+Expected Results:
+Compilation Succeeded
+How often does this happen?
