Test project that reproduces the compile error

The attached test project reproduces an error where the mono compiler seems to fail to infer the type of a generic parameter (see the comments in the test project). The problem only occurs when the generic methods are in a different assembly. The compile error is not produced if the project is built using VS/.NET.

The compile error produced for the attached test project is:
 error CS1061: Type `T' does not contain a definition for `String' and no extension method `String' of type `T' could be found
Comment 1 Paul Ryland 2013-02-25 16:48:04 UTC
To clarify, the comments in the test project are in Main.cs (line 36)
Comment 2 Marek Safar 2013-02-28 10:44:44 UTC
I cannot reproduce this with Mono 3.x, marking as already fixed
