           Summary: Sys.Web.Extensions and Javascript proxy for nested
                    complex types
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries

For my website, I have a webservice which returns a list of custom types, where
those custom types have other nested custom types.  I am using the
ScriptManager to generate the JS proxy to the service, and then use the proxy
to execute calls against the webservice.  

Previously, mono had been serializing both the list elements as well as the
nested types within the list elements.  However, my application stopped working
after updating from SVN.

I have added a quick workaround that will always serialize these complex nested
types, but it does not currently honor the attribute as described in the link
referenced in the comment in the following patch:

                                        finally {

After putting this fix in place, my application works once again.  Of course
the above is a quick and dirty hack that needs proper fixing, but it
illustrates the issue.
