[cfe-dev] Issue count discrepancy in scan-build for Objective-C

Hi Ted,

Good idea for a test. It actually finds more issues so Xcode clearly knows how to run the tool better than me. I notice that with the command line execution I see some issues that make me think it is using the old (not modern) runtime:

error: synthesized property 'persistentStoreCoordinator' must either be named the same as a compatible ivar or must explicitly name an ivar
@synthesize persistentStoreCoordinator;
5 errors generated.

Any tips on troubleshooting would be appreciated.

Essentially, if you use the clang in checker-258 directly within Xcode, do you get the same results as when using scan-build?  If so, this is a scan-build issue.  If not, this is a potential regression in the analyzer itself.
