+Bug#: 55790
+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: unspecified
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Major
+Component: CORLIB
+AssignedTo: mono-bugs@ximian.com

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Can't pass arguments to a new process (Process.StartInfo.Arguments)
+Description of Problem:
+The arguments to a process are ignored when running the process.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Compile code below.
+2. Run code on a Linux machine.
+using System;
+using System.Diagnostics;
+public class Test
+        public static void Main()
+        {
+                Process p = new Process();
+                p.StartInfo.FileName = "/bin/echo";
+                p.StartInfo.Arguments = "Hello, world.";
+                p.Start();
+                p.WaitForExit();
+        }
+Actual Results:
+A blank line is printed.
+Expected Results:
+Should see "Hello, world.".
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+This code works with mono 0.30.2 and does not work with mono 0.31 (using
+mono or mint).
+If you substitute something like /usr/bin/man for /bin/echo, you can see
+that the program is executed, but with no arguments (i.e. it will print an
+error message "What manual page do you want?").
+There's nothing particular about "Hello, world.": using "Hello" with no
+space and no comma causes the same problem.
