+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: 1.2
+OS: All

+Status: NEW

+Component: CORLIB

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: ConfigurationFile should be relative to the ApplicationBase
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you
+are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. AppDomainSetup setup = new AppDomainSetup();
+2. setup.ApplicationBase = "some_dir";
+3. setup.ConfigurationFile = "test.config";
+4. AppDomain.CreateDomain("ConfigurationFileDomain", null, setup);
+Actual Results:
+The .config file is read from the current directory.
+Expected Results:
+The .config file is read from "some_dir/test.config".
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+This is how it behaves in .NET although I don't think it's explicitly
+documented. In .NET if ConfigurationFile is specified before setting
+ApplicationBase then an exception is thrown. No exception is thrown under
+the current Mono implementation. This can easily trip up applications
+developed under .NET.
+I'm going to submit patches for the unit tests and a fix.
