Description gsvick 2016-09-10 18:26:21 UTC
When compiling this code:

    using System;
    public class Test
        public static void Main()
            Console.WriteLine(nameof(A.Y));  // works fine, but shouldn't
    public class A
        public int X;
        private int Y {get; set;}

The Roslyn compiler fails with:

> error CS0122: 'A.Y' is inaccessible due to its protection level

The mcs compiler (I have tried the latest version from the download.mono-project.com repo on Ubuntu, which is does not report any error and the resulting program runs fine. It should instead mirror the Roslyn compiler and fail during compilation.
