+Summary: Array derived classes need a .ctor (Int32)
+A mail from Ian McLean in mono-devel-list says:
+When I interrogate an array type ( subtype of System.Array ) using 
+reflection it appears to have no constructors. So the following code 
+gets a single constructor on ms.net but none when run agains mono. It 
+should have a single constructor taking an Int32 paramater so that you 
+can do string[] foo = new string[12];
+Type arraytype = Type.GetType("System.String[]" );
+ConstructorInfo [] infos = arraytype.GetConstructors(
+        BindingFlags.Public | BindingFlags.Static |
+        BindingFlags.NonPublic | BindingFlags.Instance
+         );
+Console.WriteLine( "Type {0} has {1} constructors and its base class is 
+{2}", arrayTypeName, infos.Length, arraytype.BaseType.ToString() );
