Description Martin Baulig 2016-02-17 01:07:16 UTC
When trying to run "mono --debug X" where "X" is an existing file that's not a valid assembly, you get an ugly native stack trace instead of an error message.

This happens for instance if you specify "mono" twice on the command line by accident:

$ mono /Workspace/INSTALL/bin/mono /Workspace/INSTALL/lib/mono/4.5/mcs.exe
