 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.

+I have for now changed the default "type" value that is assigned
+during MethodGroupExpr construction.  It was set to object_type and I
+have set it to typeof (MethodgroupExpr) which should force the
+compiler to call the resolution routines for resolving the type.
+I can no longer remember why the type is not set in MethodGroupExpr; 
+I guess that this is resolved if the MethodGroupExpr is part of an
+invocation and set there. 
+That fixes the issue, but am not completely happy about it.
+Running all the tests now.
