Test Case


   A project fails to build when a class property has the same name as a type. 

**Steps to Reproduce:**

   1. Open and build the attached sample in XS.

**Actual Results:**

   > Error CS0118: `BugWithinXS.TrackingService' is a `type' but a `variable' was expected (CS0118)

**Expected Results:**

   Building this project in VS2015 works fine. It should build successfully.

**Build Date & Platform:**

   XS 5.9.7
   Mono 4.0.4

**Additional Information:**


   add the "this" qualifier to the property to remove ambiguity.
