We still haven't complete support for pointer types, so you got that
assert because the compiler requests a list of all the constructors and
when we build the signature info, we have to include the info about the
unsafe constructors, too. Anyway, I added support for pointer types in
metadata now, so you can compile that code. Make sure you update corlib,

Actually, since we still don't run nunit with mono, it's better to get
simple test cases that I can run and test quickly. NUnit tests are good
for the medium term, so you can start writing them anyway:-)

Keep up with the reports!
