Read about Hashcode here

From my colleagues, I found that – .net framework does not guarantee same hash function between different versions, this includes the different versions in place on 32 bit and 64 bit systems. Not only does it not guarantee that it will be the same, but it is quite different. For consistent hash codes, you cannot use the framework hash code function, so you have create a managed implementation of the 32/64 bit .net string hash function.

I will update here more when I come across more specific scenarios
