+I should have said: CSC does compile the above program, but the
+resulting executable will not work (no generic invocations allowed on
+P/Invoke methods).
+I think the later is a silly limitation, and could be a "value add" of
+Mono, but the "value add" is clearly at the bottom of the priority list.
+The only reason for filing this bug is that the compiler should not
+crash when generating the above signature.
