 Hmm...  There's not enough information to go on.
 I looked at the related code, and it seems to avoid duplicates before
 printing the error message.

+Which compiler (gmcs vs. mcs) and which version?
+I recall issues with gmcs and type lookup when different versions of
+the same DLL were loaded -- e.g. you're trying to use the
+System.Drawing 2.0 libs but somehow gmcs finds & loads the 1.0
+version, and them complains about being unable to cast to the
+specified type, printing two identical type names.
+The error message was later clarified to make it easier to see this
+problem, but I don't remember when the change was made.
