           Summary: ResourceSet is extremely slow when using ignoreCase to
                    fetch resource strings
    Classification: Mono

Description of Problem:
When retrieving resource strings from a ResourceManager with IgnoreCase = true,
it goes extremely slow when there are thousands of strings.  This is due to the
ResourceSet iterating through all strings in the hashtable when ignoreCase=true
when a string is not found.

Proposed patch to ResourceSet: 

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Create a resource manager/set with thousands of strings
2. get string resources

Actual Results:
Current implementation is very slow looping through all strings

Expected Results:
Should use a separate hashtable (with ignoreCase) to lookup strings.

How often does this happen? 
every time

Additional Information:
Using ignoreCase is important for systems that have user-entered resource
strings (e.g. in the database) so that users don't have to worry about case.
