    Here is my attempt to mock the interface (I actually want to return a value, but throw just to make it easier to identify):

    var cache = Mock.Create<ICache>();
    _cacheFactoryMock.Arrange(m => m.Application).Returns(cache);
    cache.Arrange(m => m.GetOrAdd(Arg.AnyString, Arg.IsAny<Func<Dictionary<string, string>>>, Arg.IsAny<DateTime>(), Arg.IsAny<TimeSpan>(), null)).Throws(new DivideByZeroException());

    Here is the invocation:
    return _caches.Application.GetOrAdd(
        string.Format(CacheKeyFormat, groupName),
        () => _ldapService.FindLdapUserEmailsInGroup(groupName),
    Here is the method signature of FindLdapUserEmailsInGroup:
    Dictionary<string, string> FindLdapUserEmailsInGroup(string groupName);

    The pertinent part of the cachefactory interface:
    public interface ICacheFactory
            ICache Application { get; }       

    The pertinent part of ICache:
    public interface ICache
             TItem GetOrAdd<TItem, TState>(string key, Func<TState, TItem> getValue, TState state, DateTime absoluteExpiration, TimeSpan slidingExpiration, object dependencies = default(object));
            TItem GetOrAdd<TItem>(string key, Func<TItem> getValue, DateTime absoluteExpiration, TimeSpan slidingExpiration, object dependencies = default(object));

    I'm not sure where I am going wrong.  I have tried several permutations of the dependencies object (using null, default etc), and I'm not sure what could be wrong with the Func<Dictionary<string,string>> arg but nothing I have done so far is getting the arrange to take effect.  Any guidance is appreciated.

    Hello Uriah,

    It's hard to tell what might be wrong. I see you arrange _cacheFactoryMock.Arrange(m => m.Application)but then use  _caches.Application - it's hard to tell if they're related. Could you wrap the all the bits into a small repro project and attach it to this ticket for investigation, please?
