Sample Code

When compiling the following code, the compiler will choose the second
DoSomething() overload and then crashes. MS csc.exe correctly uses the first
DoSomething() method.

If I remove the first DoSomething(), gmcs crashes with the same failure. MS
csc.exe in this case gives an error CS0411 ("The type arguments for method
'method' cannot be inferred from the usage. Try specifying the type arguments


public class Foo<T>
    public void DoSomething(T value) {}
    public void DoSomething<U>(Func<U, T> valueExpression) {}

public class Bar
    protected void DoAnything<T, U>(U value)
        new Foo<U>().DoSomething(value);

gmcs failure:
