Description Craig Minihan 2014-03-31 20:55:39 UTC
HashSet.TrimExcess() calls HashSet.Resize(), which calculates the new collection size as follows:

int newSize = HashPrimeNumbers.ToPrime ((table.Length << 1) | 1);

This causes the collection to double in size, exactly the opposite of the callers intention. The following test code shows the issue:

var lookup = new System.Collections.Generic.HashSet<string>();

for (int i = 0; i < 10000; i++)

for (int i = 0; i < 1000; i++)

In the second loop we blow when i=13 since the array sizes are now out of range.

I'm not sure HashSet.Clear() honors the spirit of the MS docs either since only the refs are released, the arrays remain the same size.
