Re: [Vala] Issue still in master [The base type `Gdk.Drawable` of struct `X.Window` is not a struct]

The problem arises when using the package gdk-x11-2.0

Test case:

$ cat test.vala
void main(string[] args)
       Gtk.init(ref args);
       var window = new Gtk.Window(0);
       uint32 xid = Gdk.x11_drawable_get_xid(window.window);
       print("The WID is %h", xid);

$ valac test.vala --pkg gtk+-2.0 --pkg gdk-x11-2.0
x11.vapi:295.2-295.32: error: The base type `Gdk.Drawable` of struct
`X.Window` is not a struct
       public struct Window : Drawable {
Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

Does not fail with 0.7.9 here.

Note, that it seems to be a problem with name resolution -- parent of
X.Window is supposed to be X.Drawable which is defined right above it, not
Gdk.Drawable. That suggests something along the lines

    namespace N1 {
        public class A {
            public int i;

    namespace N2 {
        public struct A {
            public int i;

        public struct B : A {
            public int j;

    int main(string[] args)
        return 0;

is likely to fail the same way (I didn't try myself yet, since with my
installed 0.7.9 the problem does not seem to happen as mentioned above).
