I'm working on it. The issue is a bit more complicated with this MVC release as it relies upon
several assemblies which aren't open source (don't even come with source) so I need to first
implement at least parts of them. Please file a bug for the Sys.Web component and attach your
sample application as the test case - it will help in solving the issues, thanks.
