Interestingly, it appears *not* to happen with the cultures returned by CultureInfo.GetCultures. Still investigating.
Comment 2 Jon Skeet 2013-03-22 16:46:29 UTC
Hmm. Now it *is* happening with the cultures returned by CultureInfo.GetCultures. I'm very confused. It's possible that when I thought it was working, I was actually running the MS .NET version... at the moment it's just failing for me all the time.
