I was getting an error in a StreamReader that wraps a NetworkStream.

I got a "\r" from StreamReader.ReadLine cause Peek always returned -1
cause you cannot seek a NetworkStream.

With MS runtime, it worked fine, so i supposed they don't check for
CanSeek in StreamReader.Peek (), which does not need any seek operation to
be done, just reading one more char and keep it buffered.

Do you still think that i'm wrong?
