Description David Lechner 2015-10-16 22:22:17 UTC
Here is an NUnit test case:

using System;
using System.IO;

using NUnit.Framework;
using Mono.Unix;

namespace UnixListenerBug
  public class Test
    public void TestCase ()
      var socketFile = Path.GetFullPath ("test.socket");
      if (File.Exists (socketFile)) {
        File.Delete (socketFile);
      Assume.That (!File.Exists (socketFile));
      var listener = new UnixListener (socketFile);
      Assert.That (File.Exists (socketFile));

      // change to false to see that dispose does not delete file
      if (true) {
        listener.Start ();
        listener.Stop ();
        var filenameUsedInDisposeMethod = ((UnixEndPoint)listener.LocalEndpoint).Filename;
        Assert.That (filenameUsedInDisposeMethod, Is.EqualTo (socketFile));

      listener.Dispose ();
      Assert.That (!File.Exists (socketFile));

More info:

Rather than saving the UnixEndpoint that was passed to UnixListener.Init() [1], it saves the one that is created by the Socket[2]. The get accessor of LocalEndPont here calls UnixEndPoint.Create() [3], which is where it seems the null characters are coming from.
