 I've added a test case to the nunit tests in System marked as NotWorking

+Note that Uri constructor also interprets the argument string as a
+file path, such as new Uri ("c:\\Windows\\System32") where .NET treats
+it as "file://c:/Windows/System32". The same happens to "/file" (or
+imagine "/proc") on Linux with Mono. It *must* be absolute.
+So, if you have added a wrong test case, change it properly. Note that
+our Uri test fixtures have conditional tests by platform, so such
+cases should be treated per-platform.
