           Summary: `int*[]' array initializer problem
           Product: Mono: Compilers
           Version: SVN
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: C#
        AssignedTo: mono-bugs at lists.ximian.com
        ReportedBy: martin at novell.com

          Found By: ---

When compiling the following test case:

using System;

namespace ConsoleApplication6
    unsafe class Program
        static int a;
        static int* the_ptr = (int*) 0xdeadbeaf;
        static int** the_pptr = (int**) 0xdeadbeaf;

        static void Main(string[] args)
            Console.WriteLine ("TEST: {0:x}", new IntPtr (the_pptr).ToInt64

            fixed (int* a_ptr = &a)
                Console.WriteLine(new IntPtr(a_ptr));

                int*[] array = { the_ptr };
                int*[] array2 = { a_ptr };
                int* ptr = the_ptr;
                int** pptr = the_pptr;

                fixed (int** pptr2 = &the_ptr)
                    Console.WriteLine(new IntPtr(pptr));

I'm getting

/work/mordor/ConsoleApplication6/ConsoleApplication6/Program.cs(19,24): error

Try using a new expression instead

This works fine with Visual Studio.
