Created attachment 3538 [details]
The debugger shows "Unknown Identifier" for Constants or Static values that exists in classes inside a class library.
It shows the correct value when the "constant" is defined in a class inside the same project.
Steps to reproduce:
- Create new iPhone Project
- Add a new iPhone Library Project to it.
- Create a class with constant or static values inside the class library.
- In the iPhone Project, create a reference to the Library.
- Debug the iPhone Project and try to see the constant values. It will show "Unknown Identifier"
