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.

Fixed in master and Mono 4.8
