           Summary: Marshal.StructureToPtr handles null pointers/delegates
    Classification: Mono

When invoking StructureToPtr, delegates in the returned structure are never

Suppose you have a class struct containing one delegate:
struct TestStruct {
TestDelegate test;

"test" is never set to null when it doesn't point to a C method. Invoking that
method results in a segfault.

See the attached test case for a minimal repro.
The unmanaged code is already compiled to a static lib; if it doesn't work for
you(probably only working on 64Bit machaines), recompile it using:
gcc -c -fPIC ./main.c -o ./main.o
gcc -shared -Wl,-soname,libptr_to_struct.so.1 -o libptr_to_struct.so  ./main.o

As this is a blocker for a Gtk# patch, it would be really nice if you could
have a look at that bug soon :-)
