Description Lopatkin Ilja 2013-09-05 02:16:15 UTC
Here's an example class:

public class Test {
    public Test(Action action) {

Invocation of the "action" instance is considered as a virtual method call which is wrong, I guess.
The same thing goes to Func instances too, but not for delegates.

I have verified this issue and noticed that "action" instance is not considered as a virtual method. 

I followed below steps:

1. Created console project.
2. added new Test class
3. implement code mentioned in bug description.
