 It would be nice to get a test case showing a wrong behaviour

+For example this code works with the Microsoft version and fail with
+MONO version:
+System.ComponentModel.BooleanConverter boolConv = new
+System.Globalization.CultureInfo culture = null;
+System.ComponentModel.ITypeDescriptorContext context = null;
+bool b = (bool)boolConv.ConvertFrom(context, culture, "false");
+b = (bool)boolConv.ConvertFrom(context, culture, "false ");
+b = (bool)boolConv.ConvertFrom(context, culture, " true");
+In the MSDN seems that only context parameter can be null (and maybe I
+only call the TypeConvert with the wrong parameter), but I suggest to
+not use ToLower but simply use bool.Parse. In this way culture
+parameter is not necessary. I also add a Trim on the string.
