Description Philippe Monteil 2012-11-23 11:33:31 UTC
the problem is produced by the code below:

#define _TEST_

using System;

namespace test

    public class CTest

        public CTest()
            int i=0;

        void Test()
            CTest _pCTest = null; // 'CTest' appears in green
            _pCTest=new CTest();

#if _TEST_
        void _Test()
            CTest _pCTest = null; // 'CTest' does not appear in green
            _pCTest=new CTest();
