The String.Split bug for which I posted a patch I would consider an 
"important bug", since it's a fix for a core system function (it doesn't 
get any more "core" than System.String) that was implemented incorrectly.

As they say, it's better to not implement a function at all than to 
implement it incorrectly. I've been dealing with this for over a year, 
having to check to see if code is running under Mono, and adding extra 
code to work around "Mono's buggy system library". How embarrassing.

I'm having trouble convincing you developers to look at the fix though. 
I submitted what I hope is the final version of the patch a week ago, 
and no one has said a word. Perhaps the problem is that no one is 
responsible for corlib?

This fixes, by the way, bug #322375 that I filed just over a year ago. 
Wow, a year ago. And even when I fixed it myself I still can't get the 
patch merged. :-(   *sniff*

Just a little disappointed,
