Platform: Mono Built ON Solaris 7 SPARC 32. 


Test case Failure:  Culture Info read-only property set to "TRUE" for
the "Referenced Assemblies". When the expected result was "FALSE"




While analyzing the failure of the


1) Test Case failure at AssemblyNameTest.cs

2)  Failure happens while checking whether the culture info of the
referenced assembly has the read-only property set as "False".

3) While trying to analyze we found out that, the culture info of all
referenced assemblies in our case, the referenced assemblies being

    "MSCORLIB", "NUNIT.FRAMEWORK", returns the culture info read only
property as True, because of which the test case fails to execute.


When executing the same test case on the "Runtime 2.0" all the test
cases executes successfully without any failure.




And while going through various links and stuffs we found a patch very
close to the above mentioned issue which is already applied to the
source. Am including the link here for your reference




We also figured out by searching on this issue and going through the
mono source that, the read only property by default is set to "FALSE",
which in our case is not happening for the referenced assemblies build
and getting executed on Solaris 7 SPARC platform.


Assistance Required:


It would be of great help if you people could shed your views and
highlight the things lacking from our side to execute the test case




Best regards
