Aaah, wait. Again, it's my mistake. I should have mentioned that I had this
bug with mixed values and nulls. That's why I used an initilizer list. I
simply reduced the problem to the most simple exemple I could, as Miguel
asked me.

My original code is in fact a static 2D array with quite a few elements that
I create inside a static constructor. I use it to implement an object
factory pattern. There are a few nulls because the behavior of the factory
is not defined for all values.

Hope this helps,
Etienne Boucher
