Not sure which component to assign, probably assembly browser.

When I got some compile error due to CS0122 (access to non-public type), I want to look up the declaration.
If the declared type is in the references and not in other project sources, the text editor opens the assembly browser and ... nothing happens.

It is because the type is NOT visible on the default assembly browser.
If the Visibility ComboBox on the assembly browser chooses "All members", then it jumps to the declaration as expected.

What is the expected behavior? I can think of:

- show a message dialog or status message that "cannot jump to the type because it is in some dll and the assembly browser is publlic-only mode"
- shows a dialog to tell above plus "switch to 'All members' mode?"

Current state is "It just doesn't work" so some remedy should be taken.

My repro code, compile with MonoDevelop.CSharpBinding.dll in roslyn branch:

using ICSharpCode.NRefactory6.CSharp.Completion;

public class Foo : CompletionContextHandler

Maybe some family of bug #30429?
