+Summary: TimeSpan is serialized differently between Mono and MS.NET
+Description of Problem:
+If a member of a class implementing ISerializable is of type TimeSpan it is
+serialized differently on Mono and MS.NET using BinaryFormatter.
+If a single TimeSpan is serialized it's done the same way on both
+platforms. Microsoft seems to format it as primitive type when serialized
+as member of a ISerializable class.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Compile the attached sample
+2. Run it on Mono and MS.NET
+3. Compare the resulting file.
+Actual Results:
+Resulting binary file differs.
+Expected Results:
+Resulting binary file is equal.
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+BinaryTypeCode of TimeSpan seems to be 12. There is no TypeCode for it :-(
