+Description of Problem:
+XML doc generation for a method with a generic output parameter crashes.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Create a file doctest.cs containing

+class DocTest {

+    public void Method<T>(out T result) { }
+// end of doctest.cs
+2. gmcs /target:library /doc:doctest.xml doctest.cs

+Sorry if this is the wrong component, I wasn't sure where this bug should
+be reported.
