Memory dump of the error and VS sample project

I'm trying to run the following code on Linux Bash Shell on Windows 10 x64, but it also fails the same way on Ubuntu. 

class Program
        int[] _testArray = { 3, 49, 40, 58, 32 };

        static void Main(string[] args)
            var arr = new int[5];
            var type = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetTypes().Where(x => x.Name.Contains("<PrivateImplementationDetails>")).Single();
            var fieldInfo = type.GetFields(BindingFlags.NonPublic | BindingFlags.Static).Single();
            RuntimeHelpers.InitializeArray(arr, fieldInfo.FieldHandle);

The code above runs perfectly on Windows .NET and Mono versions for Windows. 

If I make _testArray static the problem goes away.

Mono JIT compiler version 4.8.1 (Stable Wed Apr 12 12:00:40 UTC 2017)

Please find attached memory dump and a sample project for Visual Studio.

Any help is much appreciated!
