           Summary: Environment.GetFolderPath() behaviour inconsistent
                    with .NET
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: UNIX Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Minor
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: CORLIB
        AssignedTo: mono-bugs at lists.ximian.com
        ReportedBy: ickard at gmail.com

The values returned by GetFolderPath() under unix and OSX is very inconsistent
with .NET/Windows. 

It should be as consistent as possible with MSDN:

Suggested changed:
SpecialFolder.Personal and .MyDocuments should give XDG_DOCUMENTS_DIR on Linux,
as they both return MyDocuments on windows.

SpecialFolder.UserProfile should mean HOME.

SpecialFolder.ApplicationData should give the correct value
(~/Library/Application Support) on Mac OS X, not ~/.config.

ProgramFiles could (arguably) return /Applications on OSX.

Reproducible: Always
