+Summary: XmlReader unexpected Exception thrown when reading attributes
+Description of Problem:
+When reading an XML file using XmlReader, Element Attribute values read
+using ReadContentAsString() causes an exception where Microsoft .NET 2.0
+does not (using gmcs).
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Attached is sample code (if I can figure out how to attach a .gz)
+2. Follow the steps below to compile and execute under Linux.
+3. Compare results with steps below for Windows XP and .NET 2.0.
+Actual Results:
+cc at cczip:~/temp/TestXmlReader$ ls -l
+total 8
+-rwxr--r-- 1 cc cc  82 Sep  3 23:22 MyData.xml
+-rwxr--r-- 1 cc cc 418 Sep  3 23:53 Program.cs
+cc at cczip:~/temp/TestXmlReader$ gmcs --version
+Mono C# compiler version
+cc at cczip:~/temp/TestXmlReader$ gmcs Program.cs
+cc at cczip:~/temp/TestXmlReader$ mono Program.exe
+Unhandled Exception: System.Xml.XmlException: Child element is not expected
+in this operation. file:///home/cc/temp/TestXmlReader/MyData.xml Line 3,
+position 3.in <0x0007f> System.Xml.XmlReader:ReadContentString ()
+in <0x0000a> System.Xml.XmlReader:ReadContentAsString ()
+in <0x0007d> TestXmlReader.Program:Main (System.String[] args)
+cc at cczip:~/temp/TestXmlReader$
+Expected Results:
+These results are from Windows XP using Visual Studio 2005:
+C:\Temp\TestXmlReader>csc program.cs
+Microsoft (R) Visual C# 2005 Compiler version 8.00.50727.42
+for Microsoft (R) Windows (R) 2005 Framework version 2.0.50727
+Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation 2001-2005. All rights reserved.
+root id = myId
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+Standard mono packages installed using apt-get from Debian repository.
+All mono packages are version
+The XML file was created under Windows, so I don't know if end-of-line
+characters are a factor.  They shouldn't be.
+Requires gmcs to compile correctly.
