           Summary: Resgen2 not rewriting backslashes in UNIX filesystems
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Compilers
           Version: 2.4.x
          Platform: i586
        OS/Version: openSUSE 11.0
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: C#
        AssignedTo: mono-bugs at lists.ximian.com
        ReportedBy: djechelon at fastwebnet.it

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; it; rv:

I created an ASP.NET web application using embedded resources in Visual Studio
in Windows in order to deploy it on Mono under openSUSE.
I added an HTML file into some of them. Resources are in
~/App_GlobalResources/xx directory (where xx is "Default" or language code),
and HTML files are in ~/Resources directory

Visual Studio generates the following into the resx file:

<data name="Default_aspx_body" type="System.Resources.ResXFileRef,
    <value>..\..\Resources\Default_aspx_body.htm;System.String, mscorlib,
Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089;utf-8</value>

Visual Studio obviously uses backslashes in Windows file system. However,
resgen2 does not find the file until I manually replace backslashes with
forward slashes. After that, it works fine.

So I think that resgen2 should be aware of Windows file system conventions when
run in UNIX environment, by simply trying to rewrite the path when File.Open
fails (or whatever is used to read the file)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a resource file in any directory of web application
2. Add a file that is hosted on a directory different than it
3. Run resgen2 -compile *.resx from resources directory
Actual Results:  
resgen2 -compile *.resx
Error: Invalid ResX input.
Position: Line 123, Column 5.
Inner exception: Could not find file

Expected Results:  
Compilation to work fine
