The patch doesn't include the new files you're adding

It did at one time... but I don't think we have tests to cover this.

Things that depends on version, like
+			Version v = Environment.OSVersion.Version;
probably won't work under Linux, MacOS X or Solaris (unless MS code
doesn't interpret the values ?).

NTLM is also used for web stuff, so it should be tested with HTTP too.
Doing a successful "GET /" on a IIS server, configured for "integrated
security", should do the trick.

Finally, before committing, we must be sure we're not breaking API
compatibility with earlier releases of Mono.Security.dll.
