+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Configuration file based on assembly name not the executable name.
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you
+are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+Mono uses a different method of finding the .config file of an application.
+Mono uses the assembly name during compilation, Microsoft uses the
+executable name.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Compile an application origional.exe that uses a config file
+2. Rename the executable to a.exe and the config to a.exe.config
+3. Run a.exe
+Actual Results:
+Mono it will try to load originonal.exe.config
+Expected Results:
+Using Microsoft.Net it will load a.exe.config
+How often does this happen? 
+This occurrs every time, you can also do:
+This will also show the difference in the config files.
+Additional Information:
+I have an executable that dynamically loads some plugins based on the
+config files, by having different configs the usage of the application
+changes (actually the entire application is a plugin) and so I'd like to be
+able to rename the exectuable to reflect the usage.
