+Summary: Invalid Cast when tested in .NET 1.1
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what 
+you are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+Invalid cast is raised in the ProviderSectionHandler when tested in 
+Microsoft .NET 1.1.
+namespace Mono.Data
+	public class ProviderSectionHandler : IConfigurationSectionHandler
+	{
+		public virtual object Create(object parent,object 
+configContext,XmlNode section)
+		{
+			ProviderCollection providers=new ProviderCollection
+			foreach (XmlElement ProviderNode in 
+			{
+				Provider provider=new Provider(
+					GetStringValue
+					GetStringValue
+					GetStringValue
+					GetStringValue
+					GetStringValue
+					GetStringValue
+				providers.Add(provider);
+			}
+			return providers;
+		}
+The foreach(XmlElement ProviderNode in section.ChildNodes) should be coded 
+as "foreach(XmlNode ProviderNode in section.ChildNodes)"  Also because the 
+ProviderNode is an XmlNode, if the NodeType is not an XmlElement the 
+GetStringValue method would fail.  In my test, it failed when the NodeType 
+is a Whitespace; therefore, a guard check is necessary in that section. 
+Something like:
+if(ProviderNode.NodeType == XmlNodeType.Element)
+   Provider provider=new Provider(
+	GetStringValue(ProviderNode,"name",true),
+   ......
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Create a project Mono.Data in Visual studio
+2. Compile the project as class library (Mono.Data)
+3. Create a client project that would use the Mono.Data
+In the Main() method have a line:
+ProviderCollection providers = (ProviderCollection) 
+Actual Results:
+An unhandled exception of 
+type 'System.Configuration.ConfigurationException' occurred in system.dll
+Expected Results:
+The providers field should have all providers defined in App.Config
+How often does this happen? 
+All the time.
+Additional Information:
+To get the Invalid Cast decorate the internal of ProviderSectionHandler 
+with a try/catch block.
