+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: unspecified
+OS Details:

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Sorting of strings difference in .NET and Mono
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you
+are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+After creating an ArrayList with the strings "foo.obj" and "foobar.obj" and
+sorting them, .NET and Mono show a different sort order:
+This is caused by the different handling of the dot.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Create ArrayList
+2. Add 2 strings (foobar.obj and foo.obj)
+3. Sort and print
+Actual Results:
+Different sort order.
+Expected Results:
+Not clear if this is specified.
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+1) The code is trivial, but I will attach it anyhow
+2) Not sure if the sorting order in this case is specified. But even if it
+isn't specified, I would suggest to follow the .NET implemenation.
