+Summary: Class reference in another namespace compile error with "Type C is not found"
+(1) If a class is in namespace A.B.C and it tries to use a class called
+X.Y.C by saying "using X.Y" and referencing C directly in the code, then
+the code fails to compile with the message:
+  "Type C is not found".
+  This used to compile cleanly with Mono 1.0. So, I was wondering this
+was a bug with mcs.
+  A way to work-around to this bug is to write the code as "using C_new
+= X.Y.C;"

+This is two things:
+	* Fixing of the lookup rules (we had a broken implementation in
+	  1.0, and now we are closer to the C# spec).
+	* The error should have been `Ambiguous reference to class C',
+	  but a regression on the errors shows it as `Not found'.
+	  This has been fixed on CVS, and will ship on 1.1.3
+It is best to have bug reports filed on CVS though to make sure that
+issues are properly tracked.
