+Summary: Decimal ToString("C")  outputs commas in the wrong place for en_GB
+
+Description of Problem:
+
+Decimal has incorrect string representation when formatted as currency with
+en_GB language - numbers are grouped in blocks of 4 instead of 3 between
+comma seperators.
+
+Example code:
+
+using System;
+public class TextFormattingProblem
+{
+  public static void Main(String[] args)
+  {
+    decimal valDecimal = 1234567890123.4567m;;
+    double valDouble = (double) valDecimal;
+    Console.WriteLine("Expected output : {0,10:C}", valDouble);
+    Console.WriteLine(" Decimal output : {0,10:C}", valDecimal);
+  }
+}
+
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+using the above example
+1. $ mcs TextFormattingProblem.cs
+2. $ export LANG=en_GB
+3. $ mono TextFormattingProblem.exe
+
+Actual Results:
+> Expected output : 1,234,567,890,123.46
+>  Decimal output : 1,2345,6789,0123.46
+
+Expected Results:
+> Expected output : 1,234,567,890,123.46
+>  Decimal output : 1,234,567,890,123.46
+
+How often does this happen? 
+Always
+
+Additional Information:
+
+This error does not occur for other locales which I've tried, such as "da"
+or "en_US"
+
+I am using gentoo's dev-dotnet/mono version 1.0.5-r3
