+Bug#: 75333
+Product: Mono: Compilers
+Version: 1.1
+OS Details: Linux
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Normal
+Component: C#

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: warning CS1587 which shouldn't be: /*******
+I have a load of source which compiles without warnings with csc. When 
+compiled with mcs every file that has /***** comments before the using or 
+namespace statements at the beginning of each file gets a 'warning 
+CS1587: XML comment is placed on an invalid language element which can 
+not accept it' warning.

+using System.Reflection; << warning CS1587
+The problem appears to be that it thinks /** starts a doc comment. 
+Changing the line to /* ******** works around the problem. Since csc 
+doesn't think /** starts a doc comment, and I've not seen it written 
+anywhere that it should I'm guessing this is a bug.
