Oh the joy of bugs.

I have a question though. Isn't mono supposed to be binary compatible, or at
least runtime-compatible with ms.net? This issue actually keeps me from using a
proprietary .net library for PDF creation, where they are doing such

You can argue that they should fix their Compare() call, but if it works on
windows, they have no incentive to fix "the issue".
