+Summary: StringWriter fails if CultureInfo passed to its constructor
+The stringWriter class has a constructor that takes a 
+System.IFormatProvider  argument. If an instance is created passing
+CultureInfo.InvariantCulture then the write methods of the stringWriter
+will fail with :
+Unhandled Exception: System.NullReferenceException: A null value was found
+ an object instance was required
+in <0x0004e> 00 System.IO.StringWriter:Write (string)
+the failure occurs when running the sample below:
+using System;
+using System.IO;
+using System.Text;
+using System.Globalization;
+public class StringWriterTest {
+    public static void Main( string[] args ) {       
+        StringWriter bodyWriter = new
+StringWriter(CultureInfo.InvariantCulture); //        
+        bodyWriter.Write("foo");
+        bodyWriter.WriteLine("foo bar");
+        Console.WriteLine(bodyWriter.ToString());       
+    }
