           Summary: extension methods not always resolved

I think the subject is accurate, but I don't have a test case yet.

I have a class named String in a file named String.cs. It has two extension

using System;

namespace ISIS.Util
    public static class String
        public static string FromStart(this string self, int length)
            return self.Substring(0, length);
        public static string FromEnd(this string self, int length)
            return self.Substring(self.Length - length, length);

Neither of these extension methods seem to be available from Mono. 'using
System' is specied at the top of the files attempting to use the methods. Same
code works on MS.Net.

I also have an instance of an extension method in a class named DataReaderRocks
which should apply to types of IDataReader, which is similarily not considered.
I'm not sure why. Works in MS.Net.
