+Bug#: 79367
+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: unspecified
+OS Details: Ubuntu Dapper, Mono SVN HEAD
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Major
+Component: CORLIB
+AssignedTo: mono-bugs at ximian.com

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: DynamicMethod ctor not following MSDN
+System.Reflection.Emit.DynamicMethod ctor (String, MethodAttributes,
+CallingConventions, Type, Type[], Module, Boolean) has been written so,
+that it differs from what MSDN has.
+name - Can be a zero-length string, but in Mono it is forbidden.
+returnType - ".., or a null reference if the method has no return type."
+Forbidden again in Mono.
+I came across it when trying to use NHibernate (1.2.0.Alpha1, the .Net 2.0
+version) - just a basic setup will result in an exception.
+When "correcting" the previous problem by removing the false checks, I got
+the following:
+Unhandled Exception: System.ArgumentException: method return type is
+  at System.Delegate.CreateDelegate (System.Type type,
+System.Reflection.MethodInfo method) [0x00000] 
+  at System.Reflection.Emit.DynamicMethod.CreateDelegate (System.Type
+delegateType) [0x00000]
+And as I don't really know the processes taking place there, I figured,
+that Mono would be better off if someone who knew what s/he was doing would
+fix that.
