Description Andrey Mironov 2015-06-23 20:16:20 UTC
I compiled this program with Microsoft .NET 4.5.1 and it works fine with Microsoft .NET. However, when I run this program with Mono it works, but send incorrect User-Agent header. Instead of sending "MLK Android Phone 1.1.9" it sends "MLK,Android,Phone,1.1.9".

using System;
using System.Net.Http;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            using (var http = new HttpClient())
                http.DefaultRequestHeaders.Add("User-Agent", "MLK Android Phone 1.1.9");

                http.GetAsync(new Uri("http://localhost:8888", UriKind.Absolute)).Wait();

If it help, when I change the header name to User-Aaaaaagent then the spaces aren't replaced with commas in the header value.
