+Summary: Fail to read formatted TimeSpan values
+Description of Problem:
+When serializing an object that has a data member of type 'TimeSpan'
+The TimeSpan is serialized using the utility class 'SoapDuration' with 
+the function: 'public static string ToString (TimeSpan value)'.
+when trying to deserialize the object, the process failes.
+The failure occures at the same utility class on the function:
+'public static TimeSpan Parse (string s)'.
+The format of the String is as follows:
+         P<year>Y<months>M<days>DT<hours>H<minutes>M<seconds>S
+where the seconds value can be a NON integer number.
+for example when constructing a TimeSpan object as follows:
+     TimeSpan t = new TimeSpan(100000);
+the formatted string should be: P0Y0M0DT0H0M0.0100000S
+because 100000 nano seconds are 0.01 seconds
+The problem, as i see it, is that the parse function doesn't cope with 
+a non integer value, and finishes with errors.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. build a DayLightInfo object
+     //This object has a data member of type TimeSpan
+     DaylightTime time = new DaylightTime(new DateTime(2000,1,1), 
+                         new DateTime(2000,1,10),           
+                         new TimeSpan(100000));
+2. serialize this object using soap
+3. deserialize this object using soap.
+Actual Results:
+   serialization fails
+Expected Results:
+   serialization should succeed
+How often does this happen? 
+   every time
