           Summary: gmcs fails type lookup in referenced assembly when
                    namespaces clash
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Compilers
           Version: SVN
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P5 - None

Test case

With code similar to the following living in some assembly:

namespace Resources
   public sealed class SomeType
       public string Prop { get; set; }

and the following in another assembly which references the one above:

namespace Another
   using System;

   public class AnotherType
       void Method ()
            Console.WriteLine (Resources.SomeType.Prop);

gmcs fails to find the SomeType type because of the external assembly's
Resources namespace clashing with System.Resources. gmcs attempts SomeType
lookup in System.Resources but fails to look for it in the external assembly's
Resources namespace.

Attached tarball contains full code which demonstrates the issue.

I'm setting this to Major as this bug affects any ASP.NET application which
uses global resources programmatically (e.g. BlogEngine)
