Description Bassam 2012-04-29 17:07:44 UTC
Guid.CompareTo seems to return the wrong result for the following comparison:

using System;
class GuidCompare
  public static void Main(string[] args) {
    Console.WriteLine(new Guid("d1c5088bc188464fb77b0fd2be2d005e").CompareTo(Guid.Empty));

Expected: returns 1
Actual: return -1
