Here is the output of a debugging session in the 'Immediate' window which demonstrates the issue:

> info
> info.GetType ()
> info.Document
> info.Document.GetType ()
Method `GetType' not found in type `IViewContent'.

fixed in git master

Bug seems to be still there as of 2012-09-14, git rev 729d487c

Test code:

    public class TestClass
        static void Main(string[] args)
            ICollection foo = args;

I put a breakpoint on the WriteLine and the immediate pad gives me:

> foo.GetType()
Method `GetType' not found in type `ICollection'.
> foo.Count
System.InvalidProgramException: Missing or incorrect header for method get_Count

Not sure if the second problem is a separate bug or not.
