Test case Failure:  GetComSlotForMethodInfo of the “Marshal” class returns
"7" for the "IUnknown Interface". When the expected value was "3"


While analyzing the failure of the
mono-1.9/mcs/class/corlib/System.Runtime.InteropServices/MarshalTest.cs, found
out that

1) Test Case failure at MarshalTest.cs (Line.no 469)

2)  Failure happens while checking whether the “GetComSlotForMethodInfo” of
Marshal Class returns “7” for the “ITestUnknown” interface of type
“IUknown” present in MarshalTest.cs, when the expected result was “3”.

3) While trying to analyze the failure we found out that, the “marshal.c”
present in “mono-1.9/mono/metadata” uses the
“cominterop_get_com_slot_begin “ which returns the slot numbers for members
of interfaces.

4) Here the interface’s attributes is returned by the
“mono_custom_attrs_get_attr” function which is being stored in the
“MonoInterfaceTypeAttribute” variable “itf_attr”.

5) The interface attribute does not return the correct “intType” as
expected for the “IUnknown” interface, resulting in failure to return
When we tried executing the test cases on the "Runtime 2.0" it resulted in same


While trying to understand things happening, we found out from the “MSDN”
site that the zero-based slot number returned by this method accounts for three
IUnknown and possibly four IDispatch methods, making the value of the first
available slot either 3 or 7.
