+Summary: HttpWebRequest.GetResponse does not send HTTP request when Method is "MKCOL"
+This is a recent regression with Mono 1.2.  I last tested this code with
+Mono 1.1.17 and it worked as expected.
+When trying to make a directory over a WebDAV share ("MKCOL"), Mono's
+System.Web.HttpWebRequest hangs after calling GetResponse.  Hooking up
+Ethereal revealed that while it was connecting and performing the TCP
+handshake, it wasn't actually sending any HTTP traffic.  The method then
+returns after the timeout.
+However, on Windows, the same source executes as expected, throwing
+WebExceptions for the Error 405 which comes back from the HTTP server, and
+then on the final path, it succeeds in creating the directory.
+Feel free to try this out on the Url provided -- just change the final
+directory in the path if it succeeds in a directory there.
