Bug in sample

When assigning an out parameter in conditional statement with the ternary operator, the method won't compile. This is a regression since the sample project compiles fine on the stable channel but won't compile on the alpha channel. I noticed the Mono version in stable is 3.4 and in alpha is 3.6 

Here is an example

private bool TestSucceed(uint b, out uint a)
        //Works fine
	int c = 0;
	if ((a = Set (b, c)) != 0)
	    return true;

	    return false;

private bool TestFail(uint b, out uint a)
	int c = 0;
	//Taking the conditional '(c == 0 ? 0 : 0)' and replacing it with a valid int will make this compile
	if ((a = Set (b, c == 0 ? 0 : 0)) != 0)
		return true;

	return false;

private uint Set(uint test, int x)
	return 0;

Attached is a sample project with this error. Let me know if any further information is needed.
