+Summary: DateFormat.ParseExact() doesn't work as expected
+Description of Problem:
+I'm trying to parse a string into a DateTime. For example an Apache 
+access_log with timestamps like:
+"28/Mar/2004:19:12:37 +0200"
+with this pattern "dd\"/\"MMM\"/\"yyyy:HH:mm:ss zz\"00\"". This works 
+perfectly under .NET in Windows but fails under mono.
+The source looks like this:
+c = new CultureInfo("en-US");
+string s = "28/Mar/2004:19:12:37 +0200";
+expectedFormats = {"dd\"/\"MMM\"/\"yyyy:HH:mm:ss zz\"00\""};
+DateTime mydate = DateTime.ParseExact(date, expectedFormats, c, 
+It fails with 
+Could not parse: 28/Mar/2004:19:12:37 +0200
+in <0x0013d> System.DateTime:ParseExact (string,string[],System.
+in <0x00098> UnixTime.DateFormat:ToDateTime (string)
+in <0x000bc> UnixTime.LogEventParser:Generator_NewLines (object,string)
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. compile the above sourcecode
+2. run it
+3. watch it fail
+Actual Results:
+The above exception.
+Expected Results:
+A parsed DateTime object.
+How often does this happen?
