We are seeing the following stack trace in a Xamarin.iOS app in Raygun.
NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object
System.Net.ServicePoint.CheckAvailableForRecycling(System.DateTime& outIdleSince) in <filename unknown>:0
System.Net.ServicePoint.IdleTimerCallback(System.Object obj) in <filename unknown>:0
System.Threading.Timer+Scheduler.TimerCB(System.Object o) in <filename unknown>:0
We are using Xamarin.iOS 220.127.116.11 and have seen the error reported on iOS 8 and 9.
I believe the error has to do with this commit: https://github.com/mono/mono/commit/a769e74c5320f2cfa85efe80f2e1c1d8470c271b
Specifically, https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/a769e74c5320f2cfa85efe80f2e1c1d8470c271b/mcs/class/System/System.Net/ServicePoint.cs#L317 might need a check for groups != null.
1. Thread 1 calls CheckAvailableForRecycling
2. Thread 2 calls CheckAvailableForRecycling
3. Thread 1 locks (this) and builds groupList
4. Thread 2 locks (this) and builds groupList, while Thread 1 is iterating groupList (lines 304-310)
5. Thread 1 locks (this) on line 312, while Thread 2 is iterating groupList.
6. While holding lock, Thread 1 sets groups to null.
7. Thread 1 exits lock
8. Thread 2 locks (this) on line 312 and groups is null. => NRE
Fixed in mono master and Mono 4.2
