Description Jamie 2015-03-06 05:16:42 UTC
var dtf = new CultureInfo("ar-EG").DateTimeFormat;

dtf.DayNames, dtf.AbbreviatedDayNames and dtf.ShortestDayNames all return an array with 7 empty strings.

This is also present in desktop mono:

  $ csharp
  csharp> using System.Globalization; 
  csharp> var c = new CultureInfo ("ar-EG");
  csharp> var d = c.DateTimeFormat;
  csharp> d.DayNames;
  { "", "", "", "", "", "", "" }
