+Product: Mono/Compilers
+Version: unspecified

+Summary: Strange compiling error in BigInteger.cs
+Description of Problem:
+After a trivial modification to BigInteger it wouldn't compile (CVS).
+Compiler wasn't updated before/after the fix.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Get /mcs/class/corlib/Mono.Math/BigInteger.cs version 1.10 from CVS
+2. Try to compile with MCS
+Actual Results:
+syntax error, got token `CLOSE_PARENS', expecting SEMICOLON
+./Mono.Math/BigInteger.cs(1417) error CS1002: Expecting `;'
+Expected Results:
+Compile without error (as it did before)
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+- Just changed the code (a little) to make it compile (and not break the
+corlib build). However this just hides the problem.
+- There's a lot of unsafe / pointer code in the file. Maybe the * got
+confused from a multiplication to a pointer ? but why has this worked before ?
