Simple source example of the failure

Description of Problem:
Invoking a generic method from a base class within a delegate fails to compile.
Invoking the method outside of the delegate compiles fine.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Compile the attached source:

gmcs GenericMethodCompilerFailure.cs -target:library

Actual Results:

GenericMethodCompilerFailure.cs(10,17): error CS0305: Using the generic method
`Test.BaseClass.ClearSelection<T>()' requires `1' type argument(s)
GenericMethodCompilerFailure.cs(5,21): (Location of the symbol related to
previous error)
Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings

Expected Results:

Compilation succeeds.

How often does this happen? 

Every Time

Additional Information:

This same source compiles with .Net and an older version of Mono.
