           Summary: Mono csc behaving differently from MS csc
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Compilers
           Version: 2.6.x
          Platform: All
               URL: http://mosa-project.org
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: C#
        AssignedTo: mono-bugs at lists.ximian.com
        ReportedBy: rootnode at mosa-project.org

           Blocker: Yes

When trying to use an own Attribute class inside an assembly that is compiled
with /nostdlib, 
Attributes from external referenced assemblies can't be used. This does work on
MS .Net, but not with Mono.

Steps to reproduce the problem:

namespace Foo 
    public class BarAttribute : Attribute


LibB (/nostdlib):

namespace System
    public class Attribute /* Used at another place in LibB */

    public class Something
        public void DoSomething()

Actual Results:

    [csc] Source/Something.cs: error CS0246: The type or namespace name `Bar'
could not be found. Are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?
    [csc] Source/Something.cs: error CS0616: `Foo.BarAttribute': is not an
attribute class

Expected Results:

    It does work with MS .Net, so either MS csc is not according to
specification, or mono isn't.

How often does this happen? 

    Every time.
