Fix for issue

Changes in the "System.Net\WebRequest.cs"-File in Mono 2.10.8 introduced a bug at HttpWebRequest.Create()-Function:

System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Cannot be negative.
Parameter name: startIndex

At least on Gentoo and Fedora this exception is thrown.

The introduced bypass.Remove()-Function isn't audited well enough. It's missing a bypass.Contains-Check.

On both linux distributions there is no "*.local" in the "NO_PROXY"-environment variable.
