[Mono-list] Compilation Issue

Hello guys,

This code doesn't compile (using Mono 2.4 and MonoDevelop 2.0 on OS X):

using System;

namespace test
    class MainClass
        public static void Main(string[] args)
            string Something;
            string fish = "hello";

            if ((Something = fish) != "hello"){
                Console.WriteLine("Hello World!");

It reports the error "The variable `Something' is assigned but its value is
never used(CS0219)".

This problem is stopping me compiling IronPython for Mono 2.4.

Is this a known issue, a real issue, and should I raise a bug report for it?

All the best,

Michael Foord
