+I discovered why our binary serialization did not match that of MS: 
+the _version field in List<T> was never getting incremented.
+I found this very strange, since there the version checks are 
+implemented in List<T>.Enumerator, but that does not have any effect 
+if the _version field is never touched.
+After my changes, our binary serialization matches that of MS and 
+the version checks in List<T>Enumerator match that of MS.
+Both changes are covered by unit tests.
+Let me know if its ok to commit these changes (or if you want me to 
+create a separate bug report for the version check issue).
