The source file used to reproduce the problem.

When using a conditional attribute on an attribute class, the attribute is being created even if the condition isn't met.  The following code prints "Hello World!" in Mono and "Attribute not found." in Visual Studio.

using System;
using System.Reflection;
using System.Diagnostics;

namespace ConditionalAttributeTesting
	class MainClass
		public static void Main (string[] args)
	class UtilityClass
		[Some("Hello World!")]
		public static void HelloWorld ()
			MethodInfo methodInfo = typeof(UtilityClass).GetMethod ("HelloWorld");
			if (methodInfo != null) {
				SomeAttribute someAttribute = Attribute.GetCustomAttribute (methodInfo, typeof(SomeAttribute)) as SomeAttribute;
				if (someAttribute != null) {
				Console.WriteLine (someAttribute.myString);
				} else
					Console.WriteLine("Attribute not found.");

	public sealed class SomeAttribute : Attribute
		public string myString { get; private set; }

		public SomeAttribute (string someText)
			myString = someText;
