[Mono-list] Datasets passed between methods loses data

Hi All 

I am writing an application that marshells a log4net 
file into a dataset and then passes the dataset
over to another method. I am using v 1.1.4 from the 
RPMs on Suse 9.2 and below is the code.
However when I test the dataset returned it 
has only a root node even though before
it is passed it has all the data inside it. 
I have solved the prolem for now by passing over
the data as a string type and marhalling the 
data there but wondered if I should
report it as a bug?? 

public class obj{
		public DataSet GetLogFile()
			DataSet ds = new DataSet() ;
				string _logLocation = Environment.CurrentDirectory + Path.DirectorySeparatorChar + "server.log" ;
				Stream stm = File.Open(_logLocation, FileMode.Open, FileAccess.Read, FileShare.ReadWrite) ;
				StreamReader str = new StreamReader(stm) ;
				ds.ReadXml(new StringReader("<root xmlns:log4net='http://logging.apache.org/log4net/LogSchema'>" + 
					str.ReadToEnd() + 
					"</root>")) ;
			catch(Exception e)
				log.Error("Get log file error", e) ; 
			return ds ;

public class otherObj

  obj o = new obj() ;
  DataSet ds = new DataSet() ;
  public void testxml(){
  ds = o.GetLogFile() ;
  Console.WriteLine(ds.GetXml()); //returns <root />
