[Mono-devel-list] Bugs in Enum conversion using TypeDescriptor and EnumConverter

I have found two bugs in System.ComponentModel:

1) TypeDescriptor.GetConverter does not work for enumeration 
   types because EnumConverter does not have a default constructor.

   Fix: I have changed the special handling for enumeration types.

2) EnumConverter.ConvertFrom fails with InvalidCastException because 
   the enumeration value is casted to long.

   Fix: Removed the special handling for multiple values. This is done
   in Enum.Parse already.

I have filed a bug for these two:

Could someone please review the attached patch?
