Description Alan McGovern 2012-03-22 12:05:51 UTC
This is taken from some new MonoDevelop unit tests I'm creating.


The wordy description is:
1) Create this code:

PListScheme Load (string value)
	using (var reader = XmlReader.Create (new StringReader (value)))
		return PListScheme.Load (reader);

public partial class PListScheme
	public static readonly PListScheme Empty = new PListScheme () { keys = new Key [0] };
	IList<Key> keys = new List<Key> ();
	public IList<Key> Keys {
		get {
			return keys;

	public static PListScheme Load (XmlReader reader)
		var result = new PListScheme ();
		var doc = new XmlDocument ();
		doc.Load (reader);

2) Place the debugger on a breakpoint at the line "return PListScheme.Load (reader);"

3) exceute "Step Into" 6 times. The sixth time you step, you end up at the first line in PListScheme.Load. This should happen in one step.
