+Summary: Unnecessary exception in ArrayList
+Description of Problem:  
+Assigning a value to an element in an ArrayList using the indexer raises 
+an exception. This is nice and all, but only if its really an error.  
+The check in the setter should be made against "_items.Length" (i.e. the 
+Capacity) not "_size" (i.e. the Count). With this implementation it's 
+impossible to have "gaps" in the array.  
+Forcing all elements to have some value could be a (imo no so good) design 
+decision, but there is no check when assigning the default value null to 
+an element, as long as its offset is <= count. 
+Steps to reproduce the problem: 
+1. IList aap = new ArrayList(); // default cap. is 16 for my version 
+2. aap[0] = whatever 
+Actual Results: 
+Expected Results: 
+Perfectly legal, as long as index >= 0 && index < _items.Length 
+How often does this happen?  
+Every time.
