  **** FAILED **** 

The problem is that the nested structure {{float,float,float},float} is marshalled differently from a flat structure {float,float,float,float} - Mono thinks the native function requires a pointer to the memory for the struct as the first argument, when the native function will return the struct in xmm0/xmm1. This effectively shifts the rest of the arguments by one register.

Fixed in mono master 2a8f86f22388107e1c978d28179832b71295afac.
