Not quite a NULL, while sure this is not a real pointer :)

I remember that when i traced this bug with gdb, i end up rith segfault when trying to execute code at something like 0x00000006.

And, anyway, if i'm getting a NULL for the delegate, why don't i get NullPointerException? (I get hang instead)
And I beleive this behavior is invalid anyway, both calls should succeed, should not them?

I added WriteLines for cbi.callback in the code and this is what it threw up.

First time
Proceed to emitter
Proceed to callback
Second time
Uncaught exception: System.NullReferenceException: The value 'null' was found where an instance of an object was required

So you're getting a C# null for the delegate there.

There is an example that shows problem: If i have a struct with Delegate in it, and i pass ref ThisStruct to unmanaged method twice, on second pass Delegate becomes invalid and ilrun crashes.

Mono crashes even on first pass there :))
