+Bug#: 62388
+Product: Mono: Runtime
+Version: unspecified
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Critical
+Component: misc
+AssignedTo: mono-bugs@ximian.com

+Summary: BitConverter.ToString(byte[]) works improperly with zero-length arrays
+BitConverter.ToString(byte[]) works improperly with zero-length arrays.
+An example:
+  string result = BitConverter.ToString(new byte[0]);
+The following exception throwing:
+System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Argument is out of range.
+Parameter name: startIndex
+in <0x00092> System.BitConverter:ToString (byte[],int,int)
+in <0x00042> System.BitConverter:ToString (byte[])
+Since BitConverter is used in System.Data.SqlClient classes (as far as I 
+remembers, Tds70 or something like this), this bug makes impossible to 
+e.g. pass zero-length byte arrays as query parameters.
