+Summary: Convert.ToDateTime fails without a cultureinfo object
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what 
+you are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+Using Convert.ToDateTime() without a culture object throws an exception 
+and states the object is not a valid datetime.  Passing the culture 
+solves, the problem, but it not required in dot net 1.0 or 1.1.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+DateTime dateCrawled = Convert.ToDateTime("3/6/2005 6:58:26 PM");
+Actual Results:
+EXCEPTION: String was not recognized as a valid DateTime.
+Expected Results:
+Should have placed the DateTime into the object.
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+The following code will prevent it from happening, but is not required in 
+1.0 or 1.1 of Dot Net.
+System.IFormatProvider format = new System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-
+US", true);
+DateTime dateCrawled = Convert.ToDateTime(lastCrawled, format);
