+Summary: Directory.CreateDirectory issue on Windows
+Description of Problem:
+When I try to create a directory using the static Createdirectory method 
+of the Directory class, an exception is thrown because the path is parsed 
+incorrectly.  Apparently the CreateDirectory (and probable other methods 
+too) doesn't support the \ directory separator character.
+I assume the Createdirectory does not use the Path.DirectorySeparatorChar 
+internally to parse the directory supplied.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Use Mono on Windows (2000)
+2. execute the following method : 
+System.IO.Directory.CreateDirectory(@"C:" + Path.DirectorySeparatorChar 
++ "TEST");
+Actual Results:
+Both will fail and the following exception will be reported :
+Unhandled Exception: System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Directory "\T" 
+not found.
+in <0x0005d> 00 System.IO.Directory:SetCurrentDirectory (string)
+in <0x003e9> 00 System.IO.Directory:CreateDirectory (string)
+in <0x00421> 00 System.IO.Directory:CreateDirectory (string)
+in <0x00153> 00 AlexCF.EntryPoint:Main (string[])
+Expected Results:
+I would expect the diretory C:\TEST to be created if I doesn't already 
+Everything works fine when you specify C:/TEST as directory name, but on 
+Windows the backslash should be supported as well.  The 
+Path.DirectorySeparatorChar does return the correct character.
+How often does this happen?
