           Summary: DateTimeOffset.ParseExact cannot deal with certain
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries

In microsoft .net 3.5, the following works:

DateTimeOffset.ParseExact("20080616_0126_-0900", "yyyyMMdd_HHmm_zzz",
"2008-06-16 1:26:00 -09:00"

In Mono, this fails with FormatException.  Apparently, the code assumes that
there's some separator/whitespace after the year, as it tries to parse 5 digits
even if the format specifier is yyyy.  Also, it wants a ':' between the hour
and minute portion of the offset.
