[Mono-list] Yet Another Bug Report

I caught another one of these nasty buggers.  Here is the code.

using System;

public class test
	public static void Main(string[] args)
		if(args.Length > 0)
			Console.WriteLine(new string(args[0].ToCharArray()));

The problem is with mcs/corlib.  Try compiling this with mcs running under 
mint and you get 'file class.c: line 893 (mono_class_from_mono_type): should 
not be reached' which is refering to the 'case MONO_TYPE_PTR:' line in 
mono/mono/mono/metadata/class.c.  As you can see the constructor is not 
unsafe, although there are unsafe constructors for string types.  Because, 
this only occurs when running mcs under mint, so this is probably a bug in 
reflection/type.cs.  Sorry about not writing 'real' test cases.  I promise 
this is my last one, from now on i'll go learn how to write nunit tests ;-)
