           Summary: EditText.Text.ToString() doesn't give you the contents
                    of the text field

Description of Problem:

If you call ToString() on the Text property of an EditText view, it will show
you a reference to the object rather than the contents of the property.  For

  var editText = new EditText(this);
  editText.Text = "testing";
  Log.D("ToString Test", editText.Text.ToString());
  Log.D("ToString Test", new string(editText.Text.ToArray()));

outputs the following:

  D/ToString Test(  578): android.text.SpannableStringBuilder at 43d1c730
  D/ToString Test(  578): testing

I'm not sure if this applies to other places in the API that use
IEnumerable<char> or not.

Actual Results:

A string describing the SpannableStringBuilder object

Expected Results:

A string containing the contents of the property

How often does this happen?
