Comment 1 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2015-07-16 04:23:49 UTC
The problem is that the AOT compiler uses g_strsplit to parse its arguments: https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/master/mono/mini/aot-compiler.c#L6549
Comment 2 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2015-07-16 04:26:22 UTC
Note: XI will quote paths/arguments to the AOT compiler that contains comma (maccore/3cd411db4428178db6b7577d33220e221dfd40ae), since otherwise there's no way for the AOT compiler to know if the comma means a new argument is coming or if it's in the path.

Hi João,

Could you take a look at this one.
