Visual Studio 2008 console project to demonstrate possible bug

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US; rv:

I have a weird question here.     I'm trying to do a select on an XmlElement
(from the web/app config) and it seems it's not working when I use
XmlNode.SelectNodes("//configSetting"). I get a blank list of XmlNodeList. But
in .net this works just fine. Is there some formatting issue with selecting
nodes in the mono?    I have attached a project in visual studio 2008 that
includes the xml query code and app.config.   If you test this in .net runtime
you will have no issues, but in mono it just returns an empty list.   Not sure
why.   Thanks for your help!

The project is zipped.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.   Run project in mono runtime
2.   The console app is suppose to return the connection string from the
app.config file but instead doesn't show anything because it's an empty list
Actual Results:  
Empty XmlNodeList

Expected Results:  
XmlNodeList the has 3 entries.

Any chance we could get this fixed for the current stable release?  2.6.7?   I
only ask because I know 2.8 is in development still and I'm trying to release a
product in a stable environment.   If it's a bug at all.  I'm still convinced
that this is some abnormally in mono and I just have to adjust my code to make
it work, i'm just not sure what.  :)

Thank you so much!
