ASP.NET MVC with relative MasterPage path

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.7

If you use a relative path for the MasterPageFile attribute in a ViewPage using
ASP.NET MVC, an exception is thrown.  This is because the path is supposed to
be relative to the path of the ViewPage file, but Mono makes it relative to the
Web Request path.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an ASP.NET MVC Application
2. Create a ViewPage and a MasterPage
3. Set the MasterPageFile attribute using a relative path to the ViewPage file
Actual Results:  
System.Web.HttpException: Cannot use a leading .. to exit above the top
  at System.Web.VirtualPathUtility.Normalize (System.String path) [0x0017f] in
  at System.Web.VirtualPathUtility.Combine (System.String basePath,
System.String relativePath) [0x00066] in

Expected Results:  
Page successfully displayed.

Attached is the ASP.NET MVC 2 template site created by VS 2010 altered to use
relative path MasterPageFile attributes.  It runs fine on MS .NET, but throws
an exception on Mono.
