Stylecop Code Analysis does not ignore LinqToXsdSource.cs as it should


The generated file contains many violations (~ 4600 in my case) of the code analysis rules. However, normally this file should be excluded since it contains a header as:
// <auto-generated>
// This code was generated by a tool.
// Runtime Version:4.0.30319.34209
// Changes to this file may cause incorrect behavior and will be lost if
// the code is regenerated.
// </auto-generated>
The problem is in the fact that there is a empty comment line in that header: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5027889/exclude-file-from-stylecop-analysis-auto-generated-tag-is-ignored#comment28591940_5028308

So the line between "Runtime ... " and "Changes ..." containing the single // is cause of this behavior. Please adjust as needed since the file generates each time. For now I'll fork the source code and make the adjustment myself. Thanks

Ok so I found out the string "This code was" does not come from the source of this project, I assume this is some MS fluke stored in an ancient class of some kind which undoubtfully, is inaccessible to me.

So there is but 1 solution: stop generating dynamic code, copy the file to the project and manually change it.

Shame.... I wonder why this stuff never gets fixed, no one uses dynamic XML in their MS solutions? Everyone uses Xsd.exe? Some other reason... dunno
