+Bug#: 76926
+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: 1.1
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Severity: 001 One hour
+Priority: Critical
+Component: CORLIB

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: ASCIIEncoding.GetString implementations are broken
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you
+are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+ASCIIEncoding.GetString implementations fail to actually use the
+ASCIIEncoding.GetChars code. They simply call the String constructor with
+the bytes passed in. Whether this is a problem with the String constructor
+or GetString, the behavior of GetString is inconsistent with MS.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+byte[] data = {0xFF};
+bool result = Encoding.ASCII.GetString(data) == "?";
+Actual Results:
+result == false;
+Expected Results:
+result == true;
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+It looks like you could just remove the overridden methods from
+ASCIIEncoding because Encoding does the correct thing.
