Summary0001197: Silent, leaking and confusing use of round-trip through conversion property when missing a cast
DescriptionRather than producing a warning about missing a cast to a derived class, the compiler will use conversion properties (e.g. String <-> SomeClass).

This is a major source of bugs and leaks and very difficult to track.

Since heap classes would automatically leak, conversion to a heap class or String should always be the final conversion, and deemed invalid/not used in these cases.
