Project demonstrating the compile error

All references to the Messaging class in btouch generated files should use a globally qualified namespace, e.g. global::BindingBugs.Messaging in the snippet below. Failing to use the correct namespace can cause compile errors if the binding api filename is the same as the last segment of the namespace.

namespace Foo.BindingBugs {
	[Register("Widget", true)]
	public unsafe partial class Widget : NSObject {
		[Export ("doSomething:atIndex:")]
		public virtual void DoSomething (NSObject object_, int index)
			if (object_ == null)
				throw new ArgumentNullException ("object_");
			if (IsDirectBinding) {
				BindingBugs.Messaging.void_objc_msgSend_IntPtr_int (this.Handle, Selector.GetHandle ("doSomething:atIndex:"), object_.Handle, index);
			} else {
				BindingBugs.Messaging.void_objc_msgSendSuper_IntPtr_int (this.SuperHandle, Selector.GetHandle ("doSomething:atIndex:"), object_.Handle, index);
