Description Florian Kummer 2013-02-26 14:26:41 UTC

the following example fails in Mono, but runs in .NET:

using System;
using System.Runtime.Serialization.Formatters.Binary;
using System.IO;

namespace Bug
	class MainClass

		public struct MSREntry {
			public int m_ColIndex;

		public static void Main (string[] args)
			MSREntry[][] array = new MSREntry[10][];
			for (int i = 0; i < array.Length; i++)
				array [i] = new MSREntry[5];

			BinaryFormatter bf = new BinaryFormatter ();
			MemoryStream ms = new MemoryStream (new byte[1000000]);

			bf.Serialize (ms, array);
