+Summary: Problems with Culture set to "auto" in ASP.NET pages
+Description of Problem:
+Under mod_mono, when setting Culture and UICulture to "auto" in the page
+directive at the top of your page, you sometimes end up getting a
+System.NotSupportedException thrown, depending on how the browser sent the
+culture info.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Create an ASP.NET page with Culture and UICulture set to "auto" in the
+Page directive. For example:
+<%@ Page Language="C#" Culture="auto" UICulture="auto" %>
+2. This step could be hard, but make your web-browser specify a culture
+*unknown* to Mono. For example, if you use firefox (note that the
+directives might be slightly off as I use a swedish version of firefox);
+Click "Tools" > "Settings...". Go to the "tab" labelled "Advanced" and
+close to the bottom there is a button labeled "Pick...". In that list, try
+adding "Swedish [sv]" for one example, and put it at the top of the list.
+3. Browse to the ASP.NET page you created.
+Actual Results:
+Error message 500 with stack trace: 
+System.NotSupportedException: Culture "sv" is a neutral culture. It can not
+be used in formatting and parsing and therefore cannot be set as the
+thread's current culture.

+Expected Results:
+Swedish culture info in System.Threading.Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture
