[Ironruby-core] Type conversion error

Yes, you probably have the assembly that defines the type loaded twice in different load contexts (Load vs LoadFrom).
That might happen if you load the assembly using a file path (require 'x.dll') instead of a full assembly name and then dependency loads it as well.

Subject: [Ironruby-core] Type conversion error

Has anyone run into type conversion errors where you get a message like:

can't convert PcapFileHandler::PcapFileWriter into PcapFileHandler::PcapFileWriter (TypeError)

when doing:

packetHandlerWrapper.PcapWriter = NetworkMiner::PacketHandlerWriter.clr_new("", someobj)

I am totally buggered up with this.  The packetHandlerWrapepr.PcapWriter is nil when I inspect it with ruby.

I have to solve this by tonight :'(
