           Summary: '*' and ':' are not supported in ASP.NET virtual paths
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries
           Version: 2.4.x

Description of Problem:
URLs that have '*' and ':' in them are not supported in virtual paths.
Microsoft has a similar limitation, however, through a registry key
"VerificationCompatbility=1" this limitation is removed. This limitation
prohibits us from specifying file paths in URLs. The Microsoft registry key is
documented here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932552.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Start any ASP.NET application.
2. Using a browser go to http://localhost/foo/bar:45/zip

Actual Results:
400 - Bad Request is thrown with "is not a valid virtual path"

Expected Results:
No 400 thrown.

How often does this happen? 

Additional Information:
Ideally this would be something that can be disabled in the web.config file.
