           Summary: System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName does not throw
                    exception for the value ":C/"
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries
           Version: 2.2.x
          Platform: x86

In .NET Path.GetDirectoryName fails with an exception for the value ":C/".  On
Mono it simply returns ":C".

This is not a big deal; however, it does represent a difference in the
semantics of this method between Mono and .NET.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Call System.IO.Path.GetDirectoryName with an argument value of ":C/".
2. The return value is ":C" when an exception should be raised.
Actual Results:  
The value ":C" is returned.

Expected Results:  
An exception "System.ArgumentException: The path is not of a legal form."
should be raised.
