Ok, after digging into ECMA 335 and doing some testing here is the situation.

A memberref with a typespec class must match the signature against the generic
type definition because that's required to do it in a non-ambiguous way. P II
9.8 talks more about that, including an example.

The issue here is related to a .NET 3.5 (possibly SP1) extension. It allows
resolving signatures with instantiated members.

It's trivial to support it, but without the proper semantics described I fear
that we might end up with some hard to debug crashes.
