Description PoroCYon 2016-08-06 19:00:33 UTC
When trying to compile a method that uses a generic type somewhere in its body, ilasm fails with a very descriptive error message. ("Error : irrecoverable syntax error")

The 'wrong' IL being:
    callvirt instance !!T MSILInterop/TRFunc`1<!!T>::Invoke(typedref)
                                               ^ here

The complete IL source file is added as an attachment.
