[Mono-list] Encoding Issue .Net vs. Mono

New to Mono, but I am getting a strange result when Encoding bytes and
returning a string:

     int n =  System.Text.Encoding.Default.GetString(new byte[] { 0,
194, 146, 215 }).Length;

On .Net, this returns 4.
On Mono, this returns 3.

If I change the second byte 194 to 193 ... both systems return 4.

Is this a Mono bug or my lack of experience with encoding?   If it is
a bug, is there a way around this?
