And no, this isn't a programming question in the lounge. I started asking this question in the QA forum because it had me totally stumped. As I was filling out the "What I've tried" I had a major D'Oh! | :doh: D'Oh! | :doh: D'Oh! | :doh: D'Oh! | :doh: moment.

To prove I'm not asking for help on the lounge, I posted a solution on my blog. You'll need to use the password "fizbin" as the blog post is specifically for this lounge post and eventually I'll delete the post.

It is a fun one though.

Here's the code:
public class ModelDataContext : DataContext
{
    public static ModelDataContext Context;

    public ModelDataContext(DbConnection conn) : base(conn)
    {
        Context = this;
    }
}

class Program
{
    static ModelDataContext mdc = new ModelDataContext(new SqlConnection("[some string]"));

    static void CreateNewContext(DataContext context, out SqlConnection conn, out DataContext newContext)
    {
        conn = new SqlConnection(context.Connection.ConnectionString);
        newContext = (DataContext)Activator.CreateInstance(context.GetType(), new object[] { conn });
        Console.WriteLine(context == newContext);
    }

    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        SqlConnection conn2;
        DataContext newdc;
        CreateNewContext(ModelDataContext.Context, out conn2, out newdc);

        Console.WriteLine(ModelDataContext.Context == newdc);
    }
}

and the result is:

False
True

Why is the second equality True when the first is False???

And for the bonus prize, what's a fix?
