Test program to compile

Description of Problem:
Cannot compile some expressions with ?: operator.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Compile attached program.

Actual Results:
It does not compile, the error message:
Type of conditional expression cannot be determined as 'short' and 'int' convert implicitly to each other. Which is false, because int does NOT convert implicitly to short.

Expected Results:
Fine compilation.

How often does this happen? 

Additional Information:
Btw, the lines below produces correct error message:
int c = 10;
short d = c;
Error CS0266: Cannot implicitly convert type `int' to `short'. An explicit conversion exists (are you missing a cast?)
