+Summary: [System.Globalization.CompareInfo] Compare() crashes when comparing null strings
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+When Microsoft's implementation of CompareInfo.Compare receives null as a parameter, it treats 
+it as the empty string. Mono's implementation throws a null reference exception.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Use System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture.CompareInfo.Compare() to compare a 
+non-null string to null, or to compare null to null.
+2. Watch the crash
+Actual Results:
+Expected Results:
+The parameter should be treated as the empty string
+How often does this happen?
