Description Kent 2014-10-30 20:32:25 UTC
Per the attached sample, the linker is stripping both public and private inner classes even though my linker.xml is configured to include the entire assembly:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

    <assembly fullname="LinkerRepro">
        <type fullname="*"/>

My actual scenario is that I have a private inner class used reflectively my a SQLite ORM. Since the setters are accessed only via reflection, they are being stripped out by the linker.
