Overwriting "Equals"

Hi,

maybe it's already too late, but what is the deal with overwriting
Object.Equals.
I have to use "overrides overloads" to really overwrite the correct
'version' of equals, even if a single overrides should uniquely point to the
right signature. A single 'overrides' isn't possible, though. But it is
possible to only overload Equals with exactly the same signature the base
method has. So, would that then be a shadowing without warning?

Or did I miss something?

Thanks,

Klaus
