Description Alan McGovern 2012-09-27 07:30:06 UTC
I have two Gtk.TreePath objects both referring to the position {0:0:0}. In the immediate window if i type "sitPath == citPath" the debugger returns 'true'. This is incorrect as TreePath does *not* provide an overloaded == operator so it should invoke object.ReferenceEquals which returns false.

Gtk.TreePath does override the 'Equals' method so the immediate window does correctly return 'true' when i call sitPath.Equals (citPath).

Here is a screenshot of the immediate window:
