We have a test app in winforms/messagebox, that switches to the german
locale, to test reading non-neutral resources. When I run that with our
System.Windows.Froms.dll, but with Microsoft's runtime, it does read the
non-neutral locale. Doesn't that contradict the statement that MS does not
support it?
