+Summary: Directory.GetFileSystemEntries leaves out broken symlinks
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what 
+you are doing. 
+Description of Problem: 
+Calls to Directory.GetFileSystemEntries() leaves out broken symbolic links 
+Steps to reproduce the problem: 
+Run this on a directory with a broken symlink: 
+using System; 
+using System.IO; 
+public class BrokenSymLinks { 
+	static public void Main(string[] args) 
+	{ 
+		foreach (string file in Directory.GetFileSystemEntries
+(args[0])) { 
+			Console.WriteLine(file); 
+		} 
+	} 
+Actual Results: 
+Doesn't list the broken symlink(s) 
+Expected Results: 
+Should list the broken symlinks :) 
+How often does this happen?  
+Always. :) 
+Additional Information: 
+I could see why Directory.{GetFiles|GetDirectories} would not include 
+broken symlinks, but certainly not GetFileSystemEntries.
