Your code does not verify that your change must be correct. It
just shows the fact that it *affects* on our ASP.NET behavior
(Or is that a general way for .NET developers to identify the
source of bugs?).  What I expected was rather like below:

using System;
using System.Collections.Specialized;
using System.Configuration.Provider;

public class MyProvider : ProviderBase
     public static void Main ()
         NameValueCollection config = new NameValueCollection ();
         config ["name"] = "Name";
         config ["description"] = "DESC";
         config ["foo"] = "FOO";
         Console.WriteLine (config ["description"]);
         MyProvider p = new MyProvider ();
         p.Initialize ("Foo", config);
         Console.WriteLine (config ["name"]);
         Console.WriteLine (config ["description"]);
         Console.WriteLine (config ["foo"]);
         Console.WriteLine ("{0} {1}", p.Name, p.Description);

Yes, you were right, this test shows how funny behavior .net does.
