Stream have diffrent size while debugging

Hi,

I have a TestMethod to compare 2 streams using their bytes. here is part of the code (see code)

When debug this test then it pass, but when i just run it then i get the length differ fail assertion.

what is wrong in this code?
byte[] actual;
 byte[] expectedbytes;
 
using (MemoryStream actualstream = GenerateDocument(document, null, MpFunctionCode.NWPOF))
                {
                    actualstream.Position = 0;
                    actual = actualstream.ToArray();
                    actualstream.Close();
                }
 
using (Stream expected = typeof(GeneratorTest).Assembly.GetManifestResourceStream("Generator.UnitTests.resources.ExpectedOutput.pdf"))
            {
                expected.Position = 0;
                expectedbytes = WriteToByte(expected, (int)expected.Length);
                expected.Close();
            }
 
AssertEqual(actual, expectedbytes);
 
 
private static void AssertEqual(byte[] actual, byte[] expectedbytes)
        {
            if (actual.Length != expectedbytes.Length)
                Assert.Fail("Length differ:    Actual: " + actual.Length + "        Expected: " + expectedbytes.Length);
 
            for (int i = 0; i < expectedbytes.Length; i++)
            {
                if (expectedbytes[i] != actual[i])
                    Assert.Fail("Not the same: " + actual[i] + " " + expectedbytes[i] + " index: " + i);
            }
        }
 
 
private static byte[] WriteToByte(Stream stream, int initialLength)
        {
            stream.Position = 0;
            // If we've been passed an unhelpful initial length, just
            // use 32K.
            if (initialLength < 1)
            {
                initialLength = 32768;
            }
 
            byte[] buffer = new byte[initialLength];
            int read = 0;
 
            int chunk;
            while ((chunk = stream.Read(buffer, read, buffer.Length - read)) > 0)
            {
                read += chunk;
 
                // If we've reached the end of our buffer, check to see if there's
                // any more information
                if (read == buffer.Length)
                {
                    int nextByte = stream.ReadByte();
 
                    // End of stream? If so, we're done
                    if (nextByte == -1)
                    {
                        return buffer;
                    }
 
                    // Nope. Resize the buffer, put in the byte we've just
                    // read, and continue
                    byte[] newBuffer = new byte[buffer.Length * 2];
                    Array.Copy(buffer, newBuffer, buffer.Length);
                    newBuffer[read] = (byte)nextByte;
                    buffer = newBuffer;
                    read++;
                }
            }
            // Buffer is now too big. Shrink it.
            byte[] ret = new byte[read];
            Array.Copy(buffer, ret, read);
       
            return ret;
        }
