+Summary: [G]MCS doesn't stop on error CS0246
+Description of Problem:
+public class foo
+  private unexistingclassname field = null;
+Compiling that generates:
+missing.cs(3,11): error CS0246: The type or namespace name
+`unexistingclassname' could not be found. Are you missing a using directive
+or an assembly reference?
+(which is correct output)
+and after that prints:
+Unhandled Exception: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not
+set to an instance of an object
+  at Mono.CSharp.FieldExpr..ctor (System.Reflection.FieldInfo fi, Location
+l) [0x00000] 
+  at Mono.CSharp.FieldExpr..ctor (System.Reflection.FieldInfo fi, Location
+l, Boolean in_initializer) [0x00000]

+  at Mono.CSharp.Driver.Main (System.String[] args) [0x00000] 
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Write above code to a file
+2. Compile with gmcs or mcs (happens with both)
+Actual Results:
+Above printout; nullreference exception.
+Expected Results:
+Only the error message.
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
