+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: TypeTranslator - converts byte[] to not an array type
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Define or use a wsdl file, which will contain a function with an
+argument of ArrayOfUnsignedByte type. 
+2. Use wsdl2 to generate C# code. The generated C# function should have a
+form similar to:
+[System.Xml.Serialization.XmlArrayItemAttribute("Byte", IsNullable=false)]
+byte[] argument); 
+3. Try to invoke the function from the C# code. 
+Actual Results:
+The InvalidOperationException is returned, with the following message:
+"XmlArrayAttribute can be applied to members of array or collection type."
+Expected Results:
+Invocation should pass without any problem. 
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+On Microsoft .NET 2.0 it works fine.
+The problem is in TypeTranslator.cs. nameCache hashtable contains an entry
+of byte[] and it defines the TypeData as an primitive. The solution for me
+was the following change:
+- nameCache.Add(typeof (byte[]), new TypeData (typeof(byte[]),
+"base64Binary", true);
++ nameCache.Add(typeof (byte[]), new TypeData (typeof(byte[]),
+"base64Binary", false);
