Patch for mcs/class/System/System/Uri.cs

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.uri.tostring.aspx specifies that
Uri.ToString() should return the Uri completely unescaped except for '?', '#'
and '%'.

Unfortunately the query component currently does not respect the exception
list, returning a bogus representation as can be shown by the following csharp
session (tested on SVN trunk):

csharp> new Uri("http://example.com/?foo=a%23b#fragment");

Note how the "%23" has been turned to a '#', thus transforming part of a query
parameter in a fragment.

The attached simple patch should fix the problem:

csharp> new Uri("http://example.com/?foo=a%23b#fragment");
