      Description

      An attempt to compile the following code (to be placed in Main.java):
      -----------------------------------------------
      public class Main {

          public static void main(String[] args) {
              E.A.test();
          }

      }

      enum E implements X{

          A {
              public void test() {}
          }
          
      }

      interface X {
          public void test();
      }
      -----------------------------------------------

      Fails with this error:

      Main.java:4: cannot find symbol
      symbol : method test()
      location: class E
              E.A.test();
                 ^
      1 error

      If the Main class is moved at the end of the file, it can be compiled fine.

      The same problem can be reproduced when Main, E and X are in individual files. The problem occurs when the compiler is invoked as:
      javac Main.java E.java X.java
      but does not appear when the compiler is invoked as:
      javac E.java X.java Main.java
