+Bug#: 57612
+Product: Mono: Runtime
+Version: unspecified
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Major
+Component: misc
+AssignedTo: mono-bugs@ximian.com                            
+ReportedBy: gert.driesen@pandora.be

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Mono ignores privatePath in appconfig
+Currently Mono does not use the semicolon delimited list of subdirectories 
+(of the application base) in the privatePath attribute of the 
+configuration/runtime/assemblyBinding/probing element to search for 
+   <runtime>
+      <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
+         <probing privatePath="bin;"/>
+      </assemblyBinding>
+   </runtime>
+This will instruct the runtime to not only search the base directory of 
+the AppDomain, but also the bin subdirectory of that base directory for 
+assemblies.  However, at this time, Mono does not do this.
+- Directories that are not located under the base directory of the 
+appdomain should be silently ignored (atleast, this is what MS.NET does).
+- Subdirectories added to privatePath in the configuration file should not 
+be reflected in the AppDomainSetup.PrivateBinPath property, and calling 
+AppDomain.ClearPrivatePath() does not have any effect on the directories 
+added through the configuration file.
+I attached a repro for this issue.
