Sample code

## Overview

In Xamarin.Mac, zh-Hans and zh-CHS are treated as equal, whereas in .NET on Windows this is not the case.

## Steps to reproduce

1. Download attached .cs file which provides example code.
2. Compile and run.

## Expected result

No exception.

## Actual result

"An item with the same key has already been added" exception due to zh-Hans and zh-CHS being equal when they should not be.

## Notes

If you run the resulting exe on Windows it works without throwing an exception.

Xamarin.Mac is the Mac bindings for writing GUI applications. In the example above, there is no GUI needed to reproduce the issue. I'm moving to the ClassLib section.

Fixed in master and Mono 4.2

Thanks for attempting to fix this Marek!

The fix (c67cb40) you provided still doesn't quite match the documentation & the MS implementation.  

Mono Docs: http://developer.xamarin.com/api/member/System.Globalization.CultureInfo.Equals(System.Object)/

"Two CultureInfo objects are considered equal if their CultureInfo.Name and CultureInfo.CompareInfo properties are equal."

The implementation you provided checks the CultureInfo.Name, but not the CultureInfo.CompareInfo property.  (It still checks the LCID)
