Test case

With the attached patch, the GVariant demo code crash, and I don't understand why.

Note that I don't get the crash if I run with mono-boehm.

Here is a patch that fix it.

Thanks for the patch!

That was indeed quite borked:
On top of the wrong prototype, doing "IntPtr.Zero ? null : ..." was never going to give anything interesting.

I've committed this to git master.
I've just taken a detour through a pull request on GitHub, to test the new Jenkins integration.
