      Description

      Splitting off problematic but critical case of resolving static nested and inner classes in external groovy files from GROOVY-4267. Copying Roshan's example from that issue:

      Test.groovy
      import static Outer.*
      // import static Outer.Inner // also fails
      // import Outer.Inner        // also fails
      
      assert Inner.class.name != null
      
      Outer.groovy
      class Outer {
          static class Inner {}
      }
      

      Output:

      Caught: groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: Inner for class: Test
              at Test.run(Test.groovy:4)
      

      Error message is slightly different for non-static import:

      org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed:
      Test.groovy: 2: unable to resolve class Outer.Inner
       @ line 2, column 1.
         import Outer.Inner
         ^
      1 error
