test code

Calling CultureInfo.GetCultureInfo("fo-ba"); throws on MS.NET CultureNotFoundException but on Mono ArgumentException. Test is attached.

On Mono compiled:
mcs -t:exe -out:I:\Mono.exe I:\GetCultureInfoTest.cs
I:\GetCultureInfoTest.cs(10,17): warning CS0219: The variable `ci' is assigned but its value is never used
Compilation succeeded - 1 warning(s)
And resulting in:
