Description Jason 2015-03-04 11:43:27 UTC
The .Net documentation indicates that XElement.AncestorsAndSelf(XName) should exclude all elements that don't match the XName. (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb154979(v=vs.110).aspx)

Microsofts .Net implementation includes the Self element in ones that are excluded. Mono includes the 'self' element even if it doesn't match.

We are based on referencesource and this issue should have gone away.
