Sample program that compiles fine with gmcs but not mcs

When upgrading to Mono 2.11 and using mcs instead of gmcs, I encountered a bug where mcs emits error CS0411 when gmcs and csc do not. To reproduce, try to compile the attached program.

Expected results:
The program compiles without errors

Actual results:
CompilerBug.cs(41,32): error CS0411: The type arguments for method `CompilerBug.EventInfoUtility.DoFoo<TSource,TTarget>(this CompilerBug.EventInfo<TSource,System.EventHandler>, TSource, TTarget, System.Action<TTarget,object,System.EventArgs>)' cannot be inferred from the usage. Try specifying the type arguments explicitly
