 Thanks a lot for wasting yet another afternoon on this.  I checked
 get_underlying_type() everywhere and it's correct everywhere. 
 Considering the amout on time already spent on this bug (3.5 days), I
 have no other choice but close it as WONTFIX if it ever bounces back
 to me.

+The problem here is that mono_type_get_underlying_type() will return
+a broken type pointer, at least in the case of an instantiated generic
+struct. The low-level type is MONO_TYPE_VALUETYPE, but the MonoClass*
+pointer in it points to the uninstantiated generic struct and not the
+correct instantiated one, so when mono_class_from_mono_type() is
+called on it it gets the wrong info.
