 .NET1.x bug?
+------- Additional Comments From sebastien at ximian.com  2005-12-12 15:09 -------
+Overall I think that Mono behaviour is better than MS.
+(a) .NET 2.0 final still throws the ArgumentException - but, IMHO,
+this isn't really nice to do from a TryParse method. 
+(b) As for the 1.1 profile the expected result value for "0dead" is
+57842 (MS 1.1 SP1) which doesn't match it's long value 57005 or a 64
+bits double (2.18e-319).
+For compatibility purpose I'll modify Mono to match 2.0 final (the
+ArgumentException). However, unless someone knows how to get the same
+result as MS, I will keep the current behaviour (false) for 1.x.
