Target DLL that causes Gendarme error.

Running both Gendarme 2.10 and 2.11 using the command line, and the GUI Runner with "Visibility = All Code, visible or not, outside the assemblies" against the attached DLL I get a fatal exception that stops all Gendarme processing:

Rule:	Gendarme.Rules.Correctness.EnsureLocalDisposalRule

Target:	System.Void Cubs.ExtensibleWindowsServices.Runner.CubsExtensibleWindowsService::ServiceNannyThreadProc()

Stack trace: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
