          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: WCF

The source code to repeat the example.

The attached example works fine if both the client and the server are on
Windows or both the client and the server are on Linux.  However, if the client
is on Linux and the server is on Windows, I get the following exception with
the latest mono checkout:

bash-3.2# mono Program.exe 
Starting the client... [press enter to exit]

Unhandled Exception: System.Runtime.Serialization.SerializationException:
Expecting state 'EndElement'. Encountered state 'Text' with name '' with
namespace ''.

  at __clientproxy_Contract.method () [0x00000] 
  at WCFTestClient.Program.Main (System.String[] args) [0x00000] 

The method named "method()" does run on the server (it prints to the console on
the server app), but this exception occurs on deserialization of the TimeSpan

I compile the source with:

gmcs -r:/usr/lib/mono/3.0/System.ServiceModel.dll
-r:/usr/lib/mono/3.0/System.Runtime.Serialization.dll Server.cs
gmcs -r:/usr/lib/mono/3.0/System.ServiceModel.dll
-r:/usr/lib/mono/3.0/System.Runtime.Serialization.dll Client.cs
