PropertyDescriptor.GetChildProperties(null) should return the properties of
PropertyType, but instead it returns an empty collection.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a data type say
public class Entity
    public NestedEntity Property { get; set; }
2. Call

Actual Results:  
An empty PropertyDescriptorCollection is returned.

Expected Results:  
The properties of the type of the Property property (ie. the properties of the
NestedEntity type).

Easily fixed, change:

public virtual PropertyDescriptorCollection GetChildProperties (object
instance, Attribute[] filter)
    return TypeDescriptor.GetProperties (instance, filter);


public virtual PropertyDescriptorCollection GetChildProperties (object
instance, Attribute[] filter)
    return instance == null ? TypeDescriptor.GetProperties(PropertyType,
filter) : TypeDescriptor.GetProperties(instance, filter);
