+Summary: MONO Beta 1 WebException Bug Handling 401 Authorization Required.
+Description of Problem:
+MONO is not correctly handling System.Net.WebException when a 401 
+Authorization Required error occurs.  MONO is returning the "default" 
+error not the specific error and this caused a bug in a few of my apps.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Compile the test case: mcs test.cs (or csc test.cs)
+2. Run the generated EXE on both MONO Beta 1 and MS.NET
+3. Compare the difference
+Actual Results:
+MONO   WebException.Status = WebExceptionStatus.RequestCanceled
+MONO   WebException.Message = "Request error. Return code was: 
+Expected Results:
+MS.NET WebException.Status = WebExceptionStatus.ProtocolError
+MS.NET WebException.Message = "The request failed with HTTP status 401: 
+Authorization Required."
+How often does this happen? 
+All the time.
+Additional Information:
+Please compile the test case and run on MS.NET and MONO Beta 1 to see 
+this bug for yourself.
