 That was a bug, it's fixed now in SVN.

Thanks for fixing this :-)

In the vala compiler code there are quite "Gee.List list = new
ArrayList<someclass> ()" statements. Should these be changed
"ArrayList list ....", to "var list ...." or should we keep it as is?

The reason we use Gee.List instead of ArrayList in fields and method
return values is that we don't want to unnecessarily expose implementation
details. However, these doesn't really hold for local variables, so using
`var' usually makes sense there. It's not really necessary to change the
existing code, though.
