+Summary: System.ComponentModel.AttributeCollection:GetDefaultAttribute throws MissingMethodException
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what 
+you are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+System.ComponentModel.AttributeCollection:GetDefaultAttribute throws an 
+System.MissingMethodException. Stack trace follows.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Not exactly sure - but I have custom validators in an aspx file. 
+During page render, the exception below is thrown.
+Actual Results:
+System.MissingMethodException: Default constructor not foundin <0x00144> 
+System.Activator:CreateInstance (System.Type,bool)in <0x00012> 
+System.Activator:CreateInstance (System.Type)in <0x00046>

+<0x00021> System.Web.UI.WebControls.BaseValidator:get_PropertiesValid ()

+System.Web.UI.Control:RenderControl (System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter)in 
+<0x00209> ASP.Logon_ascx:__Render_LogonPane 
+(System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter,System.Web.UI.Control)in <0x0005a> (wrapper 
+(System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter,System.Web.UI.Control)in <0x00049> 
+System.Web.UI.Control:RenderChildren (System.Web.UI.HtmlTextWriter)
+Expected Results:
+Shouldn't throw an exception.
+How often does this happen? 
+Any time a page with the control is hit.
+Additional Information:
+I'm just getting started with bugzilla/cvs/etc, so please be patient.
+The problem is called by a bad implementation of 
+System.ComponentModel.AttributeCollection:GetDefaultAttribute throws 
+MissingMethodException. It assumes that the attribute has a default 
+constructor, and not all attributes do.
+Here's a replacement GetDefaultAttribute (I don't have my system set up 
+for patching yet, but I promise for the next bug.) that uses 
+GetConstructor with a check rather than an exception.
+		protected Attribute GetDefaultAttribute (Type 
+		{
+			Attribute attr = null;
+			BindingFlags bf = BindingFlags.Public | 
+			FieldInfo def = attributeType.GetField 
+("Default", bf);
+			if (def == null) {
+				ConstructorInfo constructorInfo = 
+attributeType.GetConstructor (new Type[0]);
+				if (constructorInfo != null)
+					attr = (Attribute)
+constructorInfo.Invoke (new Object[0]);
+				if (attr != null && !
+attr.IsDefaultAttribute ())
+					attr = null;
+			} else {
+				attr = (Attribute) def.GetValue (null);
+			}
+			return attr;
+		}
