Description mz 2014-10-13 09:24:13 UTC
The current implementation of ResourceSet loads the resource table in the first call to GetObject. This is different from MS implementation which loads everything in constructor. This makes the following code work in MS and crash in mono (from FirebirdSQL NET Provider):

private ResourceSet CreateResourceSet(string resourceName)
	using (var resourceStream = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetManifestResourceStream(resourceName + ".resources"))
		return new ResourceSet(resourceStream);
