 Fixed in SVN, even tough the problematic cases are completely useless.

+The case where MS does absolutely nothing is completely useless as 
+you said. And I think this is why they do nothing.:) In fact I would 
+prefer some exception but I don't suggest to be incompatible with MS.
+The missing MarshalNativeToManaged is useful however if you want to 
+implement a custom StringBuilder mashaler for example where you 
+modify the original StringBuilder instead of returning a new one. Of 
+course this requires a Hashtable to track managed objects because 
+custom marshallers are not really designed for this functionality. 
+But with this fix it is now possible to do something like that.
+And thanks for the fix.
