+Summary: Difference VB.NET vs. Mono in Val()-Funktion
+Description of Problem:
+Microsoft.VisualBasic.Val(ByVal Expression As String)
+behaves different then Monos version.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. run Console.writeline(val("111aaa")) within Visual Studio or type ?
+val("111aaa") into the Direkt Window.
+The Output is: 111.0 
+2. run the same in Mono: leads to Exception:
+Unhandled Exception: System.ArgumentException: Type of argument
+'Expression' is 'System.String', which canont be converted to numeric.

+How often does this happen?
