Description Miles 2014-05-12 19:20:27 UTC
In the below code, the Left() method is incorrectly executed twice.  The issue only appears to be happening for nullable types.

    class MainClass
        private static int _count = 1;

        public static void Main(string[] args)
            var x = Left() ?? Right();

        private static DateTime? Left()
            Console.Out.WriteLine("Execution " + _count++);
            return DateTime.Now;

        private static DateTime? Right()
            return DateTime.Now;
