Created an attachment (id=352944)
 --> (http://bugzilla.novell.com/attachment.cgi?id=352944)
contains a simple VB project and class file to reproduce the problem

Wrong variable usage in the CoreCompile target in Microsoft.VisualBasic.targets
makes it unusable out of the box: references to ${IntermediateAssembly} should
be @{IntermediateAssembly} (lines 35 and 64).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure mono-xbuild ( and mono-vbnc (2.4.2-1) are installed

2. Run xbuild on any valid VB project file (example attached).
Actual Results:  
Xbuild appears to run without errors, but the CoreCompile task is always
skipped ("because its outputs are up-to-date") and the VB classes are not

Expected Results:  
I would've preferred that it compile the code. :)

Editing Microsoft.VisualBasic.targets and changing ${IntermediateAssembly} to
@{IntermediateAssembly} fixes this problem.
