 I did some investigation on this issue. I too found that .NET 1.1 and 
 Mono are behaving in same way. But, .NET 1.0 throws IOException when 
 you create a directory with a name by which a file already exists. 
 So, it depends on which version of .NET is correct.

+OK, there are 2 possibilities:
+1. This issue could get fixed.
+2. Let things as they are and stay .NET 1.1 compatible,
+IMO it would be best, when this problem get's fixed. Whenever a method
+doesn't do what it has to do, it needs to inform the caller in some
+way, in this case throw an IOException.
+But i would understand too, if you prefer the second solution. So
+closing this bug would be OK for me too...
