+Bug#: 79806
+Product: Mono: Runtime
+Version: 1.1
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Normal
+Component: io-layer
+AssignedTo: dick at ximian.com

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Directory.CreateDirectory silently fails
+If a file already exists with the name of the directory to be created, 
+Directory.CreateDirectory fails silently (see [1]).
+Apparently, testing on the MS runtime gives:
+MS.NET 1.1: It's failing silently.
+MS.NET 2.0: It's failing with System.IO.IOException: Cannot create
+'{0}' because a file or directory with the same name already exists.
+I suggest that mono should behave as the MS runtime.
+[1] testcase:
+using System.IO;
+public class test_t {
+        public static void Main() {
+                File.CreateText("test").Close();
+                Directory.CreateDirectory("test");
+                Directory.CreateDirectory("test1");
+        }
