+Summary: Mono does not report NullRef on method calls on Null object
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you are
+Description of Problem:
+Mono does not raise a NullRef. exception where it should. Min handels the error
+ok. The problem is in SourceAnalyzer.cs . A member object "factory" is initialized
+but in the constructor there is a local object named factory wich is initialized
+instead of the member object so the member object is never initialized. Then there
+is a method call on the member onject wich is null in another member method. Mint
+raises a NullRef exception but mono does not. Both mono and mint confirms that the
+object is null through a if( ob == null) test.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Run linecounter.exe with mono and mint
+2. look in SourceAnalyzer.cs
+ It looks like execution with success
+ NullRefernceException in Linecount.SourceAnalyzer::Analyze
+How often does this happen?
+ The source code and binaries are in the supplied tar.gz file
