+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Assembly.CodeBase should not return the escaped code base
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you
+are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+Assembly.CodeBase currently returns the same string as EscapedCodeBase.  It
+should return the unescaped codebase instead.  
+This has the effect of causing
+System.Configuration.Install.AssemblyInstaller to attempt to use the
+escaped path when trying to determine the location of the log file.  The
+should the assembly's path include characters that are escaped (in
+particular I'm getting problems with { and }) the attempt to write to the
+log fails with a "directory not found"
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Run the attached test on mono, and on .net.  On .net the CodeBase shows
+the unescaped path correctly.  On mono it shows the escaped path for the
+Actual Results:
+$ ./main.exe
+Escaped CodeBase =
+CodeBase         =
+Expected Results:
+Escaped CodeBase = 'file:///C:/mono-test/%7Bfoodir%7D/TestAssembly.dll'
+CodeBase         = 'file:///C:/mono-test/{foodir}/TestAssembly.dll'
+How often does this happen? 
+Every time.
+Additional Information:
+This was observed on mono-, built from the source, on
+debian/unstable running a 2.6.9 kernel
