using System;
using System.Linq;

class C
	public static void Main ()
		var a = new int[] { 1, 2, 3 };
		var b = a.Count ();
		return; // Add a breakpoint here and add a.Count() to watch window

Error: Method `Count' not found in type `Int32[]'.

This is now partially fixed in git master (LINQ extension methods work, but not others)
