It's impossible to be only this line. Somebody needs to call this method.

Here a screenshot of the message:

Don't know about your VS settings or environment. But somebody really needs to call this method. Unless you provide a test case or further information I can't do anything.

Seems like a raise condition to me...

Here is some code where I am "always" getting the exception:

            var dbCon = CreateDbConnection();
            if (dbCon.State != ConnectionState.Open)

            for (int i = 0; i < 300; i++)
                var fbCommand = dbCon.CreateCommand();

                fbCommand.CommandText = "select count(*) from Test where Nr = " + i;
                var result = (int)fbCommand.ExecuteScalar();

                if (result == 0)
                    fbCommand.CommandText = "select count(*) from Test where Nr <> " + i;
                    result = (int)fbCommand.ExecuteScalar();



The problem doesn't occur if I wrap the fbCommand inside a using block (so maybe some cleanup job) and it doesn't occur as frequently when I reduce the for to "only" make 100 iterations.

For sure you should dispose the commands. Does the NRE happen on finalizer thread?

How would I check this?

Well, check on what thread the exception was thrown.

It seems so, I have written the CurrentThread into the watch window and that's what I see

Can you share a test case? No matter the # of iterations it's fine for me. Simple console app is enough.
