According to MSDN (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee372287(v=vs.100).aspx) the string format for TimeSpan is different than what Mono is producing. Here's a simple repro:

string t = new TimeSpan(123456789).ToString("s\\.f");

This produces "12.345", but it should be "12.3" because there is just one 'f' character in the format.
