A wee test program

Activator.CreateInstance passed a type lacking a default constructor, produces
MissingMethodException with:
    Method not found: 'Default constructor not found...ctor() of FooBar'.

Hmm three dots, confusing…

It's mis-created by Activator.CreateInstance(Type,bool) at line 307 as:
throw new MissingMethodException (Locale.GetText ("Default constructor not
        ".ctor() of " + type.FullName);

Simply remove the second argument, to call the normal "(String message)"
