+Product: Mono: Runtime
+Summary: Type.IsSubclassOf behaviour difference
+Type.IsSubclassOf behaviour is different to the MS platform when the Type
+comes from an assembly that has been loaded using the Assembly.Load method.
+Say the assembly loaded using Assembly.Load contains the class B that
+extends class A which is statically linked in the running program.
+Where t is the type of B in the loaded assembly:
+ - MS - returns false
+ - mono - returns true
+This is something to do with a loaded assembly becoming isolated from the
+statically linked code in the running program. As far as I can tell, this
+makes plugins impossible as you can never find out which types are
+available in an assembly, unless I'm missing something (which is probably
+the case), this is stupid.
