[Mono-devel-list] String.GetIndexOf() and globalization

We have noticed that Mono's String.GetIndexOf() is not working property. We
are calling s.GetIndexOf("::"), and various strings for s produce different
results, even though they all contain the substring "::". Sometimes,
GetIndexOf completely fails to find the "::", when multiple instances of "::"
are present, sometimes Mono finds the wrong one (i.e. not the last one), and
sometimes it actually finds the correct one.
There's already a bug report about it. The documentation says that this is
supposed to be a culture-aware comparison. I'm wondering if there is
something special about the string "::" in terms of culture-sensitive
comparison and ICU.
I was trying the track down the problem, and I saw that eventually, one of the
functions in locales.c was called. My knowlege of ICU is very limited,
