+Bug#: 55509
+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: unspecified
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Normal
+Component: Sys.XML
+AssignedTo: mono-bugs@ximian.com

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: XML serializer can't deserialize empty enums
+When running the attached test case, the XML serializer throws an exception:
+Unhandled Exception: System.InvalidOperationException: '' is not a valid
+value for MapModifiers.
+Since the enum type has the [Flags] attribute, the deserizalier should handle
+an empty values as a 0. This is how it works under MS.NET.
+This bug prevents IKVM.NET from compiling under mono.
