test case from (uncommitted) moonlight unit tests

If the same type name (including namespace) is defined in both the assembly
being compiled and mscorlib (possibly others too) then *mcs prefers the one in
corlib while MS csc prefers the one in the assembly.

Not sure what the specs are in this case (and I prefer out own behavior) but it
could break compatibility since our compiled assembly would be different from
the one MS compile.
