+Summary: UDP Multicast fail on SetSocketOption
+Description of Problem:
+When building a UDP client/server, and the JoinMulticastGroup() is called 
+in order for the socket to join a group.  The SetSocketMethod of the 
+Socket object fails and complains about a null value returned.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. create a multicast udp client 
+2. create a multicast udp server
+3. broadcast a simple message from client to server
+Actual Results:
+Unhandled Exception: System.NullReferenceException: A null value was 
+found where an object instance was required
+in (unmanaged) mono [0x80dd094]
+in (unmanaged) mono
+in <0x00113> 00 System.Net.Sockets.Socket:SetSocketOption 
+in <0x00044> 00 System.Net.Sockets.UdpClient:JoinMulticastGroup 
+Expected Results:
+"hello from client to server"
+How often does this happen? 
+all the time
+Additional Information:
+This program works just fine with .NET without any changes.
