[Mono-list] CodeBehind tag from VS.NET

Hi - I'm a little curious on this one... Microsoft VS.NET generates .aspx 
pages whose first line is similar to:

<%@ Page language="c#" Codebehind="WebForm1.aspx.cs" 
AutoEventWireup="false" .....

If I try to run this directly with mod_mono and Apache, I'll get a scary big 

Error message: Cannot find type WebApplication1.WebForm1

Yet if I simply change the keyword 'Codebehind' to 'src', the application runs 


This FAQ says : "That [Codebehind] attribute is ignored by MS and Mono parsing 
code" - then why does the app run on IIS but not on Mono, if both 
environments ignore the tag?

It'd just be nice to not have to make changes to source to 'make it Mono 
compliant' since .NET should be .NET :)
