Description eb1 2014-05-15 11:14:01 UTC
When trying to remove a control from a controls collections and the control is not part of the controls collection then nothing should happen. However the parent of the control still gets set to null.

var c1 = new Control();
var c2 = new Control();
var c3 = new Control();


Debug.Assert(c3.Parent == c2);

Debug.Assert(c3.Parent == c2); // this assertion currently fails
