 The problem is that the overload resolution process is picking:
 Register (object x)
 As the best method to match instead of the delegate one

+Found part of the problem, but not the solution.
+The issue is that at the time that the overload resolution happens,
+the argument.Expr is set to a MethodGroupExpr that represents the method.
+But this MethodGroupExpr's Type is set to object_type which prevents
+it from ever being selected.   So we need to find a way of resolving
+the type of the MethodGroupExpr by the time we get there.
