This appears to be related to
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=323096, although that one seems to
be fixed (still fixed correctly in 2.2).  The issue looks to be the same, but
without as much inheritance as this issue.

I would think this would be a much bigger problem than it apparently is.  It
seems than any interface that does multiple inheritance of other interfaces and
hides a method/property from one of those inherited interfaces is problematic. 
I've run into this problem doing "read-only-style" interfaces like this:

   Guid Id { get; }
   string DoSomething();   

   Guid Id { get; set; }

IMyObject : IPersistableObject, IReadOnlyObject
   // Must declare a "new" Id which hides the ones from the
   // inherited interfaces so that we don't get legitimate
   // ambiguous reference errors.
   new Guid Id { get; set; }

Now if you try to do:

IMyObject myObj = ... as IMyObject;

The second line results in the compilation error described in this issue.

(The above code is not a test case and it may not even compile - it's just
trying to give the "gist" of the problem in the context in which I encountered

Seeing as this appears to be related to another issue that was fixed, perhaps
looking at the fix for one that will shed light on this issue.
