Description of Problem:
On .NET Assembly.LoadFile throws ArgumentException when a relative path is provided. Mono does not complain.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Compile Plugin.cs as a dll.
2. Compile Main.cs as executable.
3. Run Main.exe

Actual Results:

Expected Results:
ArgumentException thrown.

How often does this happen? 

Additional Information:
This behaviour can be observed at least on .NET 4 and .NET 3.5, but as far as I know it is not documented.
