[IronPython] Odd behaviour from nested classes

Thanks for the bug report, I've opened CodePlex bug 779 - this is similar to another issue we saw recently but I don't think we fixed the type case.

Subject: [IronPython] Odd behaviour from nested classes


I just found some incredibly strange behaviour when using nested C# classes.
Here's the repro:

namespace Test {
     public class Aye {
         public class AyeBee {

import clr

 >>> import hax
 >>> import Test
 >>> Test.Aye
<type 'Aye'>
 >>> Test.Aye.AyeBee
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File , line 0, in <stdin>##15
AttributeError: type object 'Aye' has no attribute 'AyeBee'
 >>> import clr
 >>> Test.Aye.AyeBee
<type 'AyeBee'>

The trick here is hax/__init__.py, if I reference the assembly "manually" then the problem ceases to exist. I'm not sure whether this is a quirk of nested classes or the clr module itself.
