debian testing

Consider the following code:

//file bug.cs
using System;

interface IParam<T>
  where T : IParam<T>

interface IA
  void f<T>(IParam<T> p)
    where T : IParam<T>;

class A : IA
  void IA.f<T>(IParam<T> p)


there's an error while compiling with mcs -t:library:

bug.cs(17,30): error CS0314: The type `T' cannot be used as type parameter `T' in the generic type or method `a.IParam<T>'. There is no boxing or type parameter conversion from `T' to `a.IParam<T>'

ms csc is ok.

if changing the explicit implementation to implicit, there's no error:
//this is ok
class A : IA
  public void f<T>(IParam<T> p)
    where T : IParam<T>
