+Summary: MONO Beta 1 bug with RegEx matching.
+Description of Problem:
+Many ASP.NET apps use the RegularExpressionValidator to ensure string 
+values are within defined length using this kind of RegEX:
+However it is always failing in MONO (will not match any strings) even 
+though it works in MS.NET.  I have temporarily fixed this by changing the 
+RegEx to the following (which works in both MS.NET and MONO)
+This bug should be fixed and is probably part of the underlying RegEx 
+engine (not System.Web) but I filed the bug against this assembly because 
+I experienced it using the RegEx Validation control.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Try this RegEx: [\w\W]{8,32}
+Actual Results:
+Will not match anything.
+Expected Results:
+Should match ALL strings between 8 and 32 characters.
+How often does this happen? 
+All the time on MONO Beta 1.
