           Summary: [2.0] Assembly.GetType should throw TypeLoadException
                    when type cannot be loaded

        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW

On the 2.0 profile (and higher), Assembly.GetType should throw a
TypeLoadException when the specified type exists but cannot be loaded (eg. due
to missing base class)

Note that on the 1.0 profile, Assembly.GetType should return null in this case.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. extract the attached gzipped tar.
2. run 'make'.
Actual Results:  
The following output is written to stdout:

** (test.exe:4520): WARNING **: The class TypeLoad.A could not be loaded, used
n A, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null

Unhandled Exception: System.Exception: #A1
  at Program.Main () [0x00000]

Expected Results:  
Nothing is written to stdout/stderr, and the application finishes with success
exit code.
