Description Andrius Bentkus 2015-06-11 10:25:29 UTC
using System;
using System.Linq;
public class Example
	public static void Main(string[] args)
		Console.WriteLine(string.Join("\r\n", typeof(string[]).GetInterfaces().Select(i => i.Name)));

If you compile it to a binary and run it multiple times you always get a different ordering of the interfaces.

csharp repl won't reproduce the bug, running it straight with mono will.

Fixed in mono master/4.2 branch.
