First, just to be sure you know, you *almost* should never catch and rethrow, because you're not adding new information. If you want to add new information, generally you should throw a new exception and include an InnerException. Here are some examples of situations you would want to catch and rethrow:

And just to confirm you're right, you *should* expect the stack to be preserved, if you throw without any arguments.

I've confirmed the behavior you reported. In a debug build, on windows, and on mono, the behavior is not the same on .NET and on mono. It should be.

I think this is probably an actual bug and I'll go report it.
