   I have submitted a bug against the compiler http://bugzilla.ximian.com/show_bug.cgi?id=54473 about the string problem as I am not sure how to classify this bug.

  Hi all,
  In case statements, the maximum length of the string is 64 bytes. That is,
   strName = "{http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2003/03/business-process/}partnerLinks";
   switch (strName)
   case "{http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/ws/2003/03/business-process/}partnerLinks":
              System.Console.WriteLine ("Found it"); break;
   default:  System.Console.WriteLine ("Not Found it"); break;
  This code will print "Not Found it".
  On .Net the above code works just fine. I am not aware of the maximum string
   length possible under .Net. If 64 characters is indeed the specification and
   not a bug than perhaps the compiler should issue some sort of warning about it.
   Maybe it would be a better idea to make the string length the same as microsoft .Net.

   -Best Regards,
