Could someone explain to me why this piece of code (cf Step tor Reproduce) is doing well when I execute it on a x86 platform and why it fail on x64 ?

If I change something, like removing one of the unused variables, or if I remove the useless for-loop after p_lFirstId++, the strange behavior disappear.

I found that changing "pdb-only" to "full" in my release configuration, it's work again.

If you run the code directly from visual studio, it's doing well too.

Is this a JIT Compiler bug ?

Thank you in advance.

Thank you for reporting this issue. It is a bug in the x64 JIT and how it assigns registers to locals and parameters. This has been fixed in a future version of the CLR.

There are several possible work-arounds. One is to remove the useless foreach. Another would be to move the post-increment statement to be after the foreach. Yet another potential work-around would be to apply [System.Runtime.CompilerServices.MethodImplAttribute(MethodImplOptions.NoOptimization)] to the offending method. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.runtime.compilerservices.methodimploptions.aspx for more information about that flag.

I had first discovered this issue at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4715278/variable-is-not-incrementing-in-c-release-x64/4719061#4719061 using the following code:
class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
        Test(null, null, null, 0, 1);            

    public static void Test(
        List<string> liste, List<string> unused1,
        string unused2, int unused3, long p_lFirstId)
        liste = new List<string>();

        StringBuilder sbSql = new StringBuilder();

        for (int i = 0 ; i < 10 ; i++)

            foreach (string sColonne in liste)




The bug only happens in the x64 Release configuration.
