Before I changed XmlTextReader design to hold internal cache and
read the stream in advance, I tested how MS.NET(1.1) did buffering.
When you ran attached example (which uses StreamReader wrapper and
wrapped WebClient stream in such way), you will find XmlTextReader
reading the stream regardless of its markup (note that first Read()
fills the buffer up to 4096 and they never calls Read()).

If you have existing code that ran successfully under MS.NET,
please post it, and then I can review it.

BTW, if you want to get remaining stream, you can use GetRemainder().
