Sample code:

    int* arr = null;
    Console.WriteLine (arr [DBNull.Value]);

CSC says:

    error CS0029: Cannot implicitly convert type 'System.DBNull' to 'int'

Note that even if the value type is implicitly convertible to int, the generated IL is incorrect. Sample code: https://gist.github.com/rolfbjarne/29d29677b970d338ce96
