Created attachment 2371 [details]
Sample program that reproduces the bug

The attached program compiles fine with mcs, but does not handle the variable correctly; when run, it results in a NullReferenceException. Looking at the compiled code, the variable is defined as local to the MoveNext method, so assigned value does not persist to the next call to MoveNext. When compiled with gmcs, the program runs as expected.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Compile the attached program with mcs
2. Run the program

Expected Results:

Executing action
Action executed

Is output to the console.

Actual Results:

Executing action

Unhandled Exception: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object

The same change should also be made to the if statement for await that follows, as it suffers from the same issue.
