Well, my bad, agreement part does not that matter (usually
I am regarded as to have agreed to commit such patches just
because I am the maintainer, so I put status for some patches
as a disclaimer). If you'll take future responsibilities from
the change then it is no problem though.

Umm, you are right on the different aspect. It should be
indeed [Ignore] since the test itself is wrong, as well as
our code is not correct (in compatibility aspect).

NotDotNet should be used only in such case that 1)MS has buggy
implementation, or 2)the test is Mono dependent, or so.

OK, your change on #4 was wrong: it changes AssertNull() to 
Assert.Is*Not*Null() which obviously changes test semantics.

I'll revert the change and remark it as Ignore. No need to waste
extra time.
