Both mono_class_from_typeref_checked and mono_class_get_checked sometimes fail without a decent message.

Do you have binaries that show this issue?
Comment 2 Marek Safar 2016-06-08 06:14:47 UTC
I don't have suitable repro. It seems to happen only with mono called within make/xbuild but not from terminal
Comment 3 Rodrigo Kumpera 2017-08-18 22:30:05 UTC
CC'ing Aleksey as the generic errors are bugs in the type loading code.
