It has been redefined becausea the end, we want to remove  
MethodReference, and this is the default behavior for the method =

This method doesn't answer what we expect anymore, because here, two  
references (with different source) pointing on two versions of the  
same method are evaluate as equal, and we do not want that.

About tests, JB and I had wrote a fix, but we have lost it ...
But I will take a look at that asap

Thank you for your feedback
