Effort (EF6) exception when accessing DbSet (The given key was not present in the dictionary)

.net effort entity-framework entity-framework-6 linq

Question

This is proving to be a little hard to trace down, but when using Effort for testing Entity Framework 6, I seem to get a KeyNotFoundException ("The given key was not present in the dictionary") error when trying to access one of the DBSet repositories.

I noticed it works with one or two DbSets in the DbContext, but once I start adding multiple DbSets to the DbContext, I receive the above error.

Example code (this is a simplification of my entire code, error seems random when I comment out some DbSets from the DbContext and then put them back in. I also have partial classes on the models, but it succeeds on these sometimes also, so seems weird):

Test

            [Fact]
            public void MyTest()
            {
                var connection = Effort.DbConnectionFactory.CreateTransient();
                var context = new StubDbContext(connection);

                var count = context.Models1.Count();
                Assert.Equal(count, 0);

            }

DBContext and DbSets Models

    public class StubEntityModelA
    {
        [Key]
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public string Name { get; set; }
    }

    public class StubEntityModelB
    {
        [Key]
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public string Name { get; set; }
    }

    public class StubEntityModelC
    {
        [Key]
        public int Id { get; set; }
        public string Name { get; set; }
    }

    public class StubDbContext : DbContext
    {
        public StubDbContext(DbConnection connection): base(connection, true)
        {
        }
        public virtual DbSet<StubEntityModelA> Models1 { get; set; }
        public virtual DbSet<StubEntityModelB> Models2 { get; set; }
        public virtual DbSet<StubEntityModelC> Models3 { get; set; }
    }

I'm having the exact problem. Turned out it was because I was using the SQL geography data type in some of my SQL 2014 database tables, and effort doesn't support this data type, and there are no plans to add support for it at the moment either, which leaves me in a real quandry as I can't find any other in-memory database provider for EF6 which does!

There may potentially be other newer reference type fields that it also doesn't support, not sure.
