Description cmt.miniBill 2013-12-12 07:45:45 UTC
The following code compiles fine with mcs, but on the other hand is rejected by
csc with error CS0075

using System;

namespace Application
	public class EmptyClass<T>
		public static implicit operator EmptyClass<T> (int i)
			return new EmptyClass<T> ();

	public static class Program
		static void Baz(EmptyClass<int?> arg)

		public static void Main ()
			Baz ((EmptyClass<int?>)-1);
