+Summary: mono fails to throw an exception in String.Format
+Description of Problem: 
+According to ECMA, String.Format(string format, object arg0) should throw an 
+exception if arg0 is null. Mono does not throw an exception in this case, but .NET 
+does. (Surprisingly, Rotor does not.) 
+Note that the other overloads, such as String.Format(string format, object arg0, 
+object arg1) are not supposed to throw exceptions according to ECMA. 
+Steps to reproduce the problem: 
+1. mcs format2.cs 
+2. mono format2.exe 
+Actual Results: 
+No output 
+Expected Results: 
+Unhandled Exception: System.ArgumentNullException: Value cannot be null. 
+Parameter name: args 
+at System.String.Format(IFormatProvider provider, String format, Object[] args) 
+How often does this happen?
