This looks related to https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=11945

The default value for BigInteger gives incorrect values in many cases, for example

        Assert.AreEqual(BigInteger.Abs(BigInteger()), 0I)
        Assert.AreEqual((BigInteger() / 123I),0I)

        qr <- BigInteger.DivRem(BigInteger(), 1I)
        Assert.AreEqual(qr, (0I, 0I))

        CheckThrowsDivideByZeroException(fun () -> BigInteger.DivRem(BigInteger(), BigInteger()) |> ignore)

all fail (this is F# syntax - 0I is the zero value for BigInteger, i.e. BigInteger.Zero).
