.:: fails if dispating to a role exported from a module unless fully-qualified name is used #2273

The Problem

Dispatching a method to a role with .:: operator fails if role is defined in a separate file.

Expected Behavior

The following code being executed as a one-liner or in a single file outputs Foo:d as expected:

 role Foo {
     method d { note "Foo::d" }

 class Baz does Foo {
     method d { self.Foo::d }

Actual Behavior

Executing this code:

 module My {
     role Foo is export {
         method d { note "Foo::d" }

 import My;
 class Baz does Foo {
     method d { self.Foo::d }

will produce error message:

Cannot dispatch to method d on My::Foo because it is not inherited or done by Baz
  in method d at ./r-d.p6 line 11
  in block <unit> at ./r-d.p6 line 14


Use of fully-qualified My::Foo works as expected. Replacing class definition with

 class Baz does MyFoo {
     method d { self.My::Foo::d }

produces the correct Foo::d output.
