Description Florian Kummer 2015-09-02 13:46:30 UTC
I use the following code:

using System;

namespace Error {
  class MainClass {
    public static double[] GetTempBuffer() {
      Console.WriteLine("GetTempBuffer ... ");
      return new double[4];

    public static void Main(string[] args) {
      unsafe {
        //double[] _dummy = GetTempBuffer(); // works
        //fixed(double* dummy = _dummy) {    // works
        fixed(double* dummy = GetTempBuffer()) {    // fails: ges called 3 times !!!!

When i compile with mcs and execute I get the following output:
GetTempBuffer ... 
GetTempBuffer ... 
GetTempBuffer ... 

Compiling with csc under Windows gives the correct result for both, .NET and mono execution.
The problem seems to happen during compilation; the disassemble of the mcs looks as:


.method public hidebysig static void  Main(string[] args) cil managed
  // Code size       45 (0x2d)
  .maxstack  2
  .locals init (float64* pinned V_0)
  IL_0000:  call       float64[] Error.MainClass::GetTempBuffer()
  IL_0005:  brfalse    IL_0016
  IL_000a:  call       float64[] Error.MainClass::GetTempBuffer()
  IL_000f:  ldlen

} // end of method MainClass::Main
