+Summary: MONO BETA 1 Bug in Context.GetConfig()
+Description of Problem:
+When calling Request.Context.GetConfig(), MONO is returning a different 
+type than MS.NET.  I noticed this problem when using a 3rd party control 
+that was trying to read something out of the web configuration file.  
+This utility tried to cast the returned object to an IDictionary, which 
+is implemented by the Hashtable but obviously not by the 
+WebControlsConfig object being returned by MONO.  MONO should be 
+returning a Hashtable as per MS.NET.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+<%@Page language="c#" Trace="False" %>
+<script runat="server">
+void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
+  object o = Context.GetConfig("system.web/webControls");
+  Response.Write("Type was: " + o.GetType());
+Actual Results:
+Ssytem.Web.Configuration.WebControlsConfig (on MONO Beta 1)
+Expected Results:
+System.Web.Collections.Hashtable (on MS.NET)
+How often does this happen? 
+All the time on MONO Beta 1
+Additional Information:
+MONO needs to return a hashtable as per MS.NET
