Here is the repo project: https://github.com/yufeih/xamarin_ios_using_static_bug/tree/master
It compiles in visual studio. But xamarin studio on mac produces the following error:
Error CS0117: `Nine.UI.BuggyLayoutBuilder<int>' does not contain a definition for `Dock' (CS0117) (using_static_bug)
This only occurs when:
The class is a generic class
A "using static" statement is declared
The source file order in csproj matters. In the repro project, Buggy.cs is declared before AppDelegate.cs, if you swap the order of these 2 files, the error goes away.
