C#/C++ Code

Version: Mono JIT compiler version 4.6.2
Use a C++ program call C# method in dll (Embedding mono).
If the method needs an array as parameter. At the end of C++, when 'mono_jit_cleanup' was called, it gives an exception.
If we call a method without array parameter, 'mono_jit_cleanup' works without exception.

How to reproduce the exception:
Step 1: Compile the C# Code (using cmd "mcs /out:TestArrayCSharp.dll /target:library TestArrayCSharp.cs")
Step 2: Compile the C++ Code (using cmd "g++ hello.cpp -g3 `pkg-config --cflags --libs mono-2` -o hello
Step 3: Execute the program (using cmd "./hello")

Then we can get the exception:

Comment 1 Ludovic Henry 2017-10-06 23:01:48 UTC
The bug is in your code: 

1. you create `array = mono_array_new(domain, entityClass, arrayLength)` which is equivalent to the C# code `array = new TestArray[]`
2. you do `mono_array_set(array, float, index, values[index])` which is equivalent to the C# code `array[index] = values[index]` but that is impossible as array is of type `TestArray[]` and values is of type `float[]`.

The crash you are observing is a GC crash as it tries to scan `array`, which should contains objects of type `TestArray` but it contains float values.
