repro project

### Overview
If your code includes a call to a method that takes a FormattableString object, when the code is ran, the method will not be called. This happens when it is compiled in XS on the Mac. Running the same code compiled with VS2015 does not have this issue. Looking at the IL code, the compiler seems to completely omit any call to the method (IL code from Windows and Mac exes attached).

Also, adding additional scoping to sections of code with a call to the same method as above will result in the entire block of code being excluded. See the commented out code in the repro project for an example of this.

### Steps to Reproduce
1. Run the attached repro project on XS 6.0

### Expected Results
The debug output should be:

Case 1
Case 2
Case 3

### Actual Results
The debug output is:

Case 2
