[Mono-list] Marshal.SizeOf on Char Type Variations Between Platforms

If the following evaluated (VB code):


A test application returns 1 running under Windows (specifically 32-bit 7
Pro) and 2 running under Linux (specifically openSuSE 11.2 Mono 2.6.4). 
Logically, I would think that 2 should be correct, since Unicode characters
are two bytes in size.  However, I'm thinking there may be something I'm
missing, like a default project encoding option, or something to that

This doesn't cause me any problems since I know about it, but I'll want to
know about when the functionality changes in the future... which it should?
and should by MS?

Comments welcome.
