Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-08-29 13:40:27 UTC
The "Redundant assignment" inspection incorrectly warns that there's a redundant assignment, even though the value is later accessed in the finally clause.

var a = new List<int> ();
try {
	Console.WriteLine (a.Count);
	a = null;
} finally {
	if (a != null) {
		Console.WriteLine ("error");
