           Summary: Any Xml.Linq new XNode call with parameters will fail on
                    the first text parameter
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries
           Version: 1.9.0

            Status: NEW

If you do new Xelement("Foo", "Bar") it will fail because ShrinkArray tries to
append each string to a null pointer. The work around is
           new Xelement("Foo") {Value="Bar"}
but that's not obvious and doesn't address the more general cases

The fix is simple -- test prev for null and assign rather than append as in
  prev = prev == null ? o : prev + o

public static IEnumerable<object> ShrinkArray (params object [] content) {
    if (content == null || content.Length == 0)
        yield break;
    string prev = null;
    foreach (object o in content) {
        if (o is XNode) {
            if (prev != null) {
                yield return prev;
                prev = null;
            yield return o;
        } else {
            prev += o;
    if (prev != null)
        yield return prev;
