System.Web.Routing does not seem to parse the catchall parameter correctly. Below is a repro:

using System;
using System.Collections.Specialized;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.Routing;

namespace MonoRoutingBug
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            Route route = new Route("api/v{version}/folder/{folderId}/search/{*relativePath}", new RouteValueDictionary(new { controller = "Foo", action = "Index" }), new DummyRouteHandler());
            RouteData data = route.GetRouteData(new DummyHttpContext("/api/v0/folder/2793d936b47c4a73b97d01fea321db3a/search/"));
            Console.WriteLine("{0}", data == null);
            // Expected : data is not null
            // Actual: data is null

    class DummyRouteHandler : IRouteHandler
        public IHttpHandler GetHttpHandler(RequestContext requestContext)
            return null;

    class DummyHttpRequest: HttpRequestBase
        private Uri url;

        public DummyHttpRequest(string urlString)
            url = new Uri(new Uri("http://localhost"), urlString);

        public override string AppRelativeCurrentExecutionFilePath { get {
return "~" + url.LocalPath; } }
        public override string PathInfo { get { return string.Empty; } }
        public override NameValueCollection QueryString { get { return
HttpUtility.ParseQueryString(url.Query); } }

    class DummyHttpContext : HttpContextBase
        private DummyHttpRequest req;

        public DummyHttpContext(string urlString)
            req = new DummyHttpRequest(urlString);

        public override HttpRequestBase Request { get { return req; } }

This was fixed in 65f7b4a137cc45d8c666669a9343953f5f415aa4 in the mono-2-10 branch.
