Funnny .NET Infinity bug

1. Launch VS.NET

Put the following line anywhere in your code:
double d = Double.NegativeInfinity;

Place a breakpoint on adjacent line and check the value of "d" variable via Add Watch/Quick Watch.

The result would be: NaN

It has been reproduced in both Framework 1.0 and 1.1.

On few machines, however, the result is displayed correctly as "-infinity".
