+Your revised patch fixes the problem in my example file, but it
+apparently is breaking something else. I have an attached file that
+compiles cleanly pre-patch, but after the patch, throws that error again.
+It's crashing somewhere after line 368, because if I delete all the
+code after that line it compiles cleanly. I can't seem to narrow it
+down any more than that. Removing all of the XML comments from the
+file makes no difference, the error is still thrown when compiling
+with documentation.
+Steps to reproduce:
+1. Save attachment
+2. Run `gmcs -t:library -doc:<FILENAME>.xml <FILENAME>.cs`
+Pre-patch: compiles cleanly
+Post-patch: error CS1569: Error generating XML documentation file
+`newdata.xml' (`Object reference not set to an instance of an
+object')Compilation failed: 1 error(s), 0 warnings
