Why does the stderr for C# only give "Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings" when using the I. Console?

I have been trying to use the Interactive Console to trouble shoot errors in my C# code.

However, most of the time (like 99/100 times), selecting the stderr tab above the console will give me an error line that is formatted like this:

"Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings"

And it won't include any actual details on the warnings or errors.

However, if I change the input method to "Text" instead of the Interactive Console then it properly gives explanations on any errors that are in the code.

I have a very annoying workaround to getting this working by going back and forth, but I'm not sure what is causing the lack of error information. This did not use to be the case, and sometimes I do get the correct error information.

By default I have been using Chrome.

Example error output formatting (note - there are really small errors in here just to proc an error).
