+Bug#: 78712
+Product: Mono: Compilers
+Version: 1.1
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Normal
+Component: C#
+AssignedTo: rharinath at novell.com

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Wrong error given with poorly formed generic syntax
+When leaving out the generic on a variable, gmcs says the B type or
+namespace could not be found when in fact it should say something like "B
+type requires " (C# Error 0305, I think?)
+B b = new A<B>();
+aaron at sledipus:~/Desktop$ gmcs cs0305-test.cs
+cs0305-test.cs(9,3): error CS0246: The type or namespace name `B' could not
+be found. Are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?
+Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings
