Description Ben Cooley 2013-06-28 18:18:55 UTC
The method is ...

protected override void ApplyToExtraTarget (Attribute a, MethodSpec ctor, byte[] cdata, PredefinedAttributes pa)
	if (a.Target == AttributeTargets.Parameter) {
		parameters[0].ApplyAttributeBuilder (a, ctor, cdata, pa);

	base.ApplyAttributeBuilder (a, ctor, cdata, pa);    /// <<< --- Stack overflow


		public override void ApplyAttributeBuilder (Attribute a, MethodSpec ctor, byte[] cdata, PredefinedAttributes pa)
			if (a.Type == pa.CLSCompliant || a.Type == pa.Obsolete || a.Type == pa.Conditional) {
				Report.Error (1667, a.Location,
					"Attribute `{0}' is not valid on property or event accessors. It is valid on `{1}' declarations only",
					a.Type.GetSignatureForError (), a.GetValidTargets ());

			if (a.IsValidSecurityAttribute ()) {
				a.ExtractSecurityPermissionSet (ctor, ref declarative_security);

			if (a.Target == AttributeTargets.Method) {
				method_data.MethodBuilder.SetCustomAttribute ((ConstructorInfo) ctor.GetMetaInfo (), cdata);

			if (a.Target == AttributeTargets.ReturnValue) {
				if (return_attributes == null)
					return_attributes = new ReturnParameter (this, method_data.MethodBuilder, Location);

				return_attributes.ApplyAttributeBuilder (a, ctor, cdata, pa);

			ApplyToExtraTarget (a, ctor, cdata, pa);   /// !!!!!! <<<---- Stack overflow

Fixed. Although the code cannot really be reached.
