Ugh. Thanks. It turns out that ReferenceEquals(typeof(Foo<>).MakeGenericType(typeof(Foo<>).GetGenericArguments()), typeof(Foo<>)) is true and that means that I need to do some fixing...

I guess I had it coming that a major flaw in my understanding would come to light after bragging I know so much about Reflection ;-)
