+Bug#: 69001
+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: unspecified
+OS Details: Debian Sid
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Normal
+Component: System
+AssignedTo: mono-bugs@ximian.com

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: WebRequest exceptions
+Description of Problem:
+WebRequest doesn't seem to throw exceptions when doing asyncronous requests
+with BeginGetResponse and family.
+Simple code snippet:
+Assuming that url is invalid and that it should throw a 404 exception we
+test the following code:
+		try {
+			// Create a new request and set the proxy
+			mRequest = WebRequest.Create(url);
+			// Begin the request
+			IAsyncResult r = (IAsyncResult) mRequest.BeginGetResponse(new
+AsyncCallback(on_response_callback), mRequest);
+		}
+		catch (WebException e) {
+			Console.WriteLine("exception");
+		}
+Actual Results:
+It turns out that the exception is never thrown, I tested the same code on
+.NET and it works perfectly.
+Expected Results:
+It should throw the exception on Linux too.
+Just for kicks I tried it with Mono on windows (using the combined 1.0.2
+installer) and it didn't work either.
