+Summary: Bugs in Hashtable  (Keys, Values, ContainsValue)
+Description of Problem:
+Reviewing the code I found a few bugs in Hashtable.
+a) method ContainsValue
+     Throws an exception when "value" is null. It's legal to search for
+null values. The exception is thrown because value.Equals is called when
+value is null.
+b) Keys and Values properties
+      MS .NET always return a reference for the same object. Mono creates a
+new object every time it's called. 
+c) several throw statements don't create the exception objects in the same
+way MS .NET does. In most cases MS .NET fills the ParamName property while
+mono does not.
+d) This is not a bug, it's just an optimization: in method Remove 'Slot []
+table = this.table;' should be moved inside the if statement.
+I'm attaching testcases and a patch for Hashtable.cs
