Description Narinder 2013-06-09 20:33:44 UTC

When using configSource (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.configuration.sectioninformation.configsource.aspx) in the app.config file to force the search of a config section in a separate file, the path separator used cannot be the same on Linux & .NET Windows.

On .NET the following works:
<GLOBAL_CITRD configSource=".\resources\app.config\global.config"/>
but errors out in Mono on Ubuntu 12.10

On the other hand 
<GLOBAL_CITRD configSource="./resources/app.config/global.config"/>
errors out on .NET 4 but works fine under Mono 3.0.10on Ubuntu 12.10

Perhaps this is not a bug ?
