Occasionally I am seeing in my website a NRE in
System.Web.Security.RoleManagerModule as follows:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an
  at System.Web.Security.RoleManagerModule.OnPostAuthenticateRequest
(System.Object sender, System.EventArgs args) [0x00007] in
  at System.Web.HttpApplication+<>c__CompilerGenerated1.MoveNext ()
[0x001d9] in
  at System.Web.HttpApplication+<>c__CompilerGenerated2.MoveNext ()
[0x002fd] in
  at System.Web.HttpApplication.Tick () [0x00000] in

The offending line is accessing a private field (_config) that has not been
initialized yet. It suggests that the problem is in the class's
IHttpModule.Init, where it adds its event handlers to the HttpApplication
*before* initializing _config, and an event handler is being called in the

I would just change this myself and make sure the field is set before the
events are registered, but maybe this is a symptom of a larger problem in how
modules are initialized and the order things happen in? (RoleManagerModule has
been like this since r74728, 2007-03-21.)
