[Mono-list] MS doc discrepencies

I've been working on MonoTests.System.MathTest, running it with the
Microsoft runtime, and testing the Microsoft classes.  What I found is that
in a couple of cases the Microsoft System.Math class does not behave as the
documentation describes it.

This makes me wonder which I should treat as law.  Should I write the tests
to they follow the docs to the letter, or should I write them so they all
pass when run against the Microsoft classes?

It seems to me that the docs should be trusted over the implementation, but
I want to check before I submit something.

It's also possible I'm doing something wrong.  I'll send my code to whoever
wants to proof it, but I don't want to clutter the mailing list just yet

Also, assuming this all gets worked out, should I simply post the code to
this list?
