+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: 1.1
+OS: other
+OS Details: Fedora Core 4

+Summary: machineKey incompatibility between mono/MS.NET
+Description of Problem:
+When stress testing an ASP.NET web application using a Microsoft
+Application Center Test
+ script recorded against the same web application but running on MS's .NET
+Framework, specifying a machineKey in the web.config does not result in
+compatible ViewState between the web applications.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. The following web.config entry was used on the MS.NET machine to record
+the MS ACT script:
+<machineKey decryptionKey="AutoGenerate,IsolateApps" validation="SHA1"
+2. This web.config entry was then added to the application on the Fedora
+Core 4 machine (running Apache 2 and mod_mono).
+3. The ACT machine was then pointed at the Linux machine and the test was
+played back.
+Actual Results:
+Mono throws ViewState validation exceptions on every page with a post back.
+Expected Results:
+Mono should accurately decrypt the ViewState using the provided key.  This
+works fine across machines running MS's .NET Framework.
+How often does this happen? 
+Every time.
+Additional Information:
+Using mono built from svn source on approximately March 14th, 2006.
