           Summary: null byte array doesnt get stored in the database as
    Classification: Mono

code that demonstrates the problem

User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.2; WOW64;
Trident/4.0; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; MS-RTC LM 8)

When a Null byte array gets stored in the database , it ends up storing '0x' in
the database but this actually represents an empty byte array so when its read
back, it comes back as a empty byte array rather than a null byte array. The
attached code demonstrates this. Running it on windows it stores and load back
as null .
