Mono Compiler Output

Current Behavior: When using a Delegate type declaration as a Method call the
mono compiler crashes.

Expected Behavior: The Compiler should throw an error along the lines of
"Namespace.DelegateType is a 'type' but is used like a 'variable'"

Sample Code 

namespace Test
    public delegate void SomeDel(Action a);

    public class TestClass
         public void TestMethod()
            SomeDel(() => { int i = 0; };

Mono 2.10.8
