           Summary: C# parser gets confused when casting the result of
           Product: Mono: Compilers
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: C#

using System;

public class Foo
   enum _DataType : byte {Foop}
   public static void Main(string[] args)
       _DataType dt = (_DataType)byte.Parse("123");

z at z ~ $ gmcs t.cs
t.cs(8,35): error CS1002: Expecting `;'
Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings

If I capitalize the 'byte' in 'byte.Parse', it compiles successfully.
Similarly, if I put an extra set of parenthesis around byte.Parse("123") it
compiles successfully. Something about byte being a type seems to be confusing
the compiler.

This compiles successfully on the microsoft toolchain(s).
