+Summary: HostingEnvironment.MapPath relative virtual path '~' not allowed here
+Description of Problem:
+The method System.Web.Hosting.HostingEnvironment.MapPath() is throwing an
+exception when using the parameter starting with "~".
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Setup mod_mono to run with apache. Make sure that mod-mono-server2.exe
+is running to use ASP.NET 2.0.
+2. Create an asp.net page with the following content
+<%@ Page Language="C#" %>
+<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
+    <form id="f" runat="server">
+		<%= System.Web.Hosting.HostingEnvironment.MapPath("~") %>
+    </form>
+3. Create a Web.config file that will allow you to see the error if you are
+not running the test case locally
+<?xml version="1.0"?>
+	<system.web>
+		<customErrors mode="Off" />
+	</system.web>
+Actual Results:
+Server Error in '/' Application
+The relative virtual path '~', is not allowed here.
+Description: Error processing request.
+Error Message: HTTP 500. System.ArgumentException: The relative virtual
+path '~', is not allowed here. 
+Expected Results:
+The mapping of the virtual path root to the physical path on the server. 
+This test works on windows XP using IIS Version: 5.1 and ASP.NET 2.0.50727
+and displays 
+How often does this happen?
