Code to reproduce the bug

The following code, when compiled via CSharpCodeCompiler, produces false error:

public class A
    public virtual void F() {}
public class B: A
    public virtual void F() {}

This code generates 1 warning and 1 error:
/tmp/fa35333/69a87839.0.cs(22,29) : warning CS0114: `NS.B.F()' hides inherited member `NS.A.F()'. To make the current member override that implementation, add the override keyword. Otherwise add the new keyword

(0,0) : error : /tmp/fa35333/69a87839.0.cs(16,29): (Location of the symbol related to previous warning)

Mono.CSharp.CSharpCodeCompiler.CreateErrorFromString incorrectly treats the additional line "(Location of the symbol related to previous warning)" in stderr output of mcs as an error since it doesn't match the ErrorRegexPattern regex.

Fixed in master via https://github.com/mono/mono/pull/2248.
