In the test case above, csc follows the same rule, finds a class (or
namespace) named Math in the Mono namespace, but it doesn't find
anything for 'Abs' and errors out. I guess at this point, mcs
continues the search instead.

+Ok, I had a look at this.
+a) First of all, closing this as NOTABUG was correct.
+ The original testcase was correct and both mcs and csc compiled
+ it without problems.
+b) When you give csc the /r:corlib.dll argument, csc got confused
+ by "something" and failed to compile it. However, that's not because
+ the testcase is incorrect, but because of a problem in the corlib.dll
+c) Paolo found another, related bug, which explained csc's behavior
+ with corlib.dll. This other bug is now known as #46792.
+Note: Mono.Math is incorrectly declared `public' in corlib.dll, but
+ it should be marked `internal' instead. That's just a temporary
+ issue and once that's fixed, csc will compile the original
+ testcase again.
+Bug #46792 still remains, but this one is really NOTABUG.
