Hi Rafael!

Maybe you already know that when compiling following lines with mbas, I
get the attached error:
Public Module Test
Public Sub Main()
        System.Console.WriteLine ("Hello world!")
End Sub
End Module

The error:
[root@redhat mono-dev]# mbas test.vb
System.TypeInitializationException: An exception was thrown by the type
initializer for Mono.MonoBASIC.Tokenizer ---> System.ArgumentException:
An invalid argument was specified.

Compilation failed: 1 Error(s), 0 warnings

By the way: what about the automatic Imports? Does it work?
