           Summary: Suboptimal error message on constructor initializers.
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Compilers
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: C#

This error usually bytes me, as I am never sure exactly what failed, it usually
takes some trial and error, today I finally figured it out and decided to file
the bug:

This sample:
class X {
    public int Field;

    static void Main ()
        var x = new X () {
            Field = 1;

Produces this error because of the ";" after 1:

a.cs(7,34): error CS1526: A new expression requires () or [] after type
a.cs(10,1): error CS8025: Parsing error

It probably should complain about ";" not being valid in that context.
