Description gsertgaert 2012-03-20 08:56:46 UTC
Mono 2.10.8
Inferred arrays cause unexpected errors when option infer in off.

Option Infer Off

Sub Main()
    Dim test() As Integer
    test = {0}
End Sub

Error VBNC99999: Unexpected error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object (VBNC99999) (test)

A descriptive error message with position in code.

This is because inferred arrays is a VB9 feature, and vbnc is currently only VB8 compatible.
