+Summary: Commented controls are not initialized
+In Mono, controls that are commented out in the ASP.NET page are not 
+In the MS ASP.NET (both 1.1 and 2.0), these controls are initialized 
+anyway (but not rendered ofcourse).
+The Mono behaviour definitely makes more sense to me, but for 
+compatbility with MS.NET it would be better to match the MS behavior.
+Some open-source applications (like http://www.communityserver.org) rely 
+on the MS behavior, and I can imagine that this would break other 
+applications too.
+I've attached a small repro that will output a message to the HTTP trace 
+system (and the console) indicating whether the 'DropDownList1' control 
+is NULL or not.
+Just request the "CommentedControl.aspx" page.
