+Bug#: 74640
+Product: Mono: Runtime
+Version: 1.1
+OS Details: SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9.x
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Normal
+Component: io-layer
+AssignedTo: mono-bugs@ximian.com

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: FileInfo.Length fails depending upon file name.
+The following code will never work:
+using System.IO;
+using System;
+class TrailingSpace {
+  public static void Main() {
+     FileInfo fi = new FileInfo("trailingspace ");
+     Console.WriteLine("The length of the file is {0}",fi.Length);
+  }
+for some reason the bowels of FileInfo actually remove the space from the
+string, attempt to access "trailingspace" without the space, and thus throw
+an exception even if the named file is present.  I think it is clear this
+should not occur.
+An strace shows mono calling stat() with the correct path, followed by the
+incorrect path.
