Description Rodrigo Kumpera 2016-04-24 19:45:20 UTC
Cxx generates the following:

call native int::ctor(void*)

Which doesn't validates on 64 bits mono.

It generates a ldind.32 on 32bits.

Cxx generates the same thing on both targets.

That's a dotnet quirk which is against what ECMA says, so unless more widespread tools actually generates this, no point in fixing.
