+Bug#: 52310
+Product: Mono/Class Libraries
+Version: unspecified
+OS: All

+Status: NEW   
+Severity: Unknown
+Priority: Normal

+Summary: CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.CompareInfo.Compare("foo", 0, "", 0) throws ArgumentOutOfRangeException
+When calling CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.CompareInfo.Compare("foo", 0, "", 
+0), MS.NET returns false, while mono throws ArgumentOutOfRangeException.
+Actual Result:
+1: False
+Unhandled Exception: System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Argument is out 
+of range
+Parameter name: Offset2 is greater than or equal to the length of string2
+in <0x0006b> System.Globalization.CompareInfo:Compare 
+in <0x0008b> .T:Main (string[])
+Expected Result:
+1: False
+2: False
+3: False
+4: True
+5: True
+Additional Information:
+MS Documentation states that if offset1 or offset2 is greater or equal to 
+the length of string1/string2 it should throw a 
+ArgumentOutOfRangeException but the equal case is allow by ms runtime. 
+(CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.CompareInfo.Compare("foo", 0, "f", 1) works).
+Mono also doesn't check if offset1/offset2/lenght1/length2 is less than 
+zero which isn't allowed according to ms.net documentation.
