+Summary: DateTime isn't serialized correctly using BinaryFormatter
+When serializing a DateTime variable using BinaryFormatter to a file 
+stream, the file doesn't match the MS.Net format, and causes exception 
+when reading (deserializing) it.
+More specifically:
+I created a program on MS.Net that creates an ArrayList filled with 
+objects of a class containing (among other things) a DateTime element. I 
+serialized this ArrayList to a file stream using a BinaryFormatter.
+I then ran that application on linux using mono, reading the same file I 
+created on windows. I got an ArgumentOutOfRangeException for the DateTime 
+element (actually for the TimeSpan inside it).
+I am using the DotNet Framework 3.0 on windows (July CTP) and Mono 1.1.17 
+on linux.
