           Summary: Assembly.CodeBase is broken when assemblies are shadow-
                    copied (at least in an asp.net environment)
           Product: Mono: Runtime
           Version: 1.9.0
          Platform: PowerPC
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: misc
        AssignedTo: mono-bugs at lists.ximian.com
        ReportedBy: johannes at jroith.de

When assemblies are shadow-copied (as is the case in ASP.NET) Assembly.CodeBase
should return the original path before the copy was made. Assembly.Location
should return the new path. (In ASP.NET that means, that Assembly.CodePath
should return the path of the assembly in the /Bin directory.)

In Mono both properties point to the copy.

To reproduce this, compile an assembly containing this:

using System;
using System.Reflection;

class Test {
        public Test () {
                Console.WriteLine ("codebase:" + Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly
                Console.Writeline ("location:" + Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly

and put it in the /Bin directory. Add <% new Test (); %> to a page and take a
look at the console output.
