Description reza 2013-06-21 18:15:18 UTC
in List<double>.ToArray() and my own functions, when an array is created, it sometimes is created  too short.

My code..

T[] ret = new T[Len()];

from the debugger..

> ret
> Len()

how does that happen?  This is on Xamarin/Monotouch 4.0.8 build 2

It should not* and I can't duplicate this.

* at least not if `Len` always return the same value, e.g.

int Len () { return len++; }

would produce a similar issue. Another case would be if your collection (List) has grown between the calls.

Can you extract a test case, either using List<double>.ToArray() or your own functions ? 

and show us the code for Len() ?

In looking over the code, Len() might have changed.   I'll add some locking code around it and test.

Please re-open the bug, along with a self-contained test case, if you can duplicate this.
