+Summary: resgen fails to compile VS.Net resources
+Description of Problem:
+When trying to compile a resource file with an ImageStream that was
+produced by VS.Net, Mono's resgen gives a "Object reference not set to an
+instance of an object" error.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Type: resgen /compile frmJanitor.resx
+Actual Results:
+Following output is displayed:
+"Read in 79 resources from 'frmJanitor.resx'
+Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object"
+frmJanitor.resources is 233 bytes
+Expected Results:
+The error should not be displayed, and is not displayed by Microsoft's
+resgen tool. frmJanitor.resources should be 47546 bytes.
+How often does this happen? 
+Every time
+Additional Information:
+Removing the ilstButtons.ImageStream image stream from the frmJanitor.resx
+file allows resgen to work correctly, but then the ImageList is obviously
+not in the resources file. 
+Also, if an application is built using the resource file generated form
+VS.Net, the application is unable to display the images - this separate
+problem looks related to Bug 43567.
