source code to demonstrate issue

Using mono 3.0.1 to serialize an object to JSON. 

Trying to populate additional properties for object that are not set by runtime code. Attached the System.Runtime. Serialization.OnSerializingAttribute to a method of the class being serialize. The method is not called when the object is serialized to JSON using a System.Runtime.Serialization.Json.DatacontractSerializer. 

Attached file has the sample code that demonstrates this issue. When run in Visual Studio on Windows, the resulting output is correct as is:
    {"out_value":"This is a what?","set_on_serialize":"A brick!"}

In MonoDevelop on Mac, I get
    {"out_value":"This is a what?","set_on_serialize":""}

Note that the OnSerializing event in the Cereal class is not being called.
