Offhand, my guess would be that maybe MD doesn't refresh the project's
code completion database's references when the target framework
changes. If this is the case, you should be able to work around it by
doing something else that causes it to refresh - e.g. changing the
project's target framework. If it's reproducible, please file a bug.
