Description Thomas Klose 2012-10-23 05:29:02 UTC
Casts from unsigned integer to double result in incorrect values.

Steps to reproduce: Start Mono shell (csharp).

  pi@raspberrypi ~ $ csharp 
  Mono C# Shell, type "help;" for help
  Enter statements below.
  csharp> uint u = 10;
  csharp> double d = u;
  csharp> d;
  csharp> double d = (double)u;
  csharp> d;                    
  csharp> u;

(the same occurs in actual (compiled) csharp programs.)

Actual results: unsigned integer 10 is castet to a negative double value

Expected results: unsigned interger 10 should be castet to double value 10.0

  Hardware platform: ARM (RaspberryPi)
  Mono Version: (Debian  in Raspbian (Wheezy)
  Linux kernel: Linux raspberrypi 3.2.27+ #160 PREEMPT Mon Sep 17 23:18:42 BST 2012 armv6l GNU/Linux

Does not occur on other hardware platforms (x86, x86-64) with same Mono version

I can't reproduce this using mono master, whats the output of mono --version ?

Probably a dup of 
Comment 4 Thomas Klose 2012-11-07 05:14:18 UTC
Yes, it seems so. The problem does not occur on Debian Wheezy with softfp.
