[mercury-users] Is there a way to tell if a method, variable, etc. is local or external when creating .NET il code?

The key is the type structured_name defined in ilds.m, it is meant to
refer to either assemblies or modules.  It is incorrectly refering to
a module

You could try compiling in the asm_fast.gc.decldebug grade, putting a
break point where the incorrect structured_name is output (see
ilasm.output_structured_name) and then use the track command inside
the debugger to see where the type was constructed and why it has the
wrong value.

Hope this helps.
