           Summary: gmcs "error CS0584: Internal compiler error", csc
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Compilers
           Version: 2.10.x
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW

same machine, csc under wine works, gmcs with the equivalent command line (and
same source file and 3rd party DLLs), throws internal compiler error:

gmcs -debug+  -lib:... -r:<3rdpartydll> -target:exe -out:bin/Debug/Mycode.exe

Mycode.cs(73,24): error CS0584: Internal compiler error: Method not found:
Mycode.cs(73,17): error CS0266: Cannot implicitly convert type `object' to
`3rdpartyClass'. An explicit conversion exists (are you missing a cast?)
Compilation failed: 2 error(s), 0 warnings

The line concerned is just:

  3rdpartyClass myinstance = new 3rdpartyClass();

It tooks me a few hours wondering what's wrong with my code (the line is a
small set of new addition to an existing project which has been working fine
with gmcs for years), until I tried with csc and it worked - and gmcs still
does not.

I have an equivalent nmake/csc-based makefile which I keep in sync with GNU
make/gmcs .

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. compile code under gmcs (type make) - 
Actual Results:  
internal compiler error

Expected Results:  
finishes compilation just like csc.

My code is alright but the 3rd party dll is proprietary - I am willing to try
anything including build from git, if necessary.

Since csc works and gmcs does not (and this is one a small addition to an
existing project which has been working with both for years), and an internal
compiler error is serious, I guess this is of "Major" Severity, although please
feel free to downrate it back to normal.
