 very usefull, I use csc instead, and try to run under mono and linux.
 Two years, csc/gmcs can't build any of my csharp projects. I waited 
 and waited, one bug fixed, many new bugs appeared. Maybe another 2 
 years needed for mcs/gmcs usable, or maybe not.
 Sorry my complain, I just can't wait any more.

+I'm talking about a development tree, not a release tree.  It's better
+not to paper over bugs in the development tree, so that we can fix it
+the right way.
+In this particular case, 'RootScope' is null: either it shouldn't be,
+or we shouldn't try to use its version of NamespaceEntry -- deciding
+on either of these, and fixing the remaining code will require some
+thought and some rewriting/refactoring.  (Passing a null
+NamespaceEntry is not right, since, somewhere else, the code _will_
+dereference that NamespaceEntry, and it will be harder to debug the
+problem when it NullRefs there.)
+In any case, surrounding and related code are being rewritten, and
+we'll be in a better position to judge how to fix this bug once that
+is done.
