[IronPython] DataRows and IronPython 2.0 B3

Hello all,

I'm further investigating potential compatibility issues with moving 
Resolver One to IronPython 2, and I've encountered a change in behaviour 
with respect to iterating over DataRows.

The script below works in IronPython 1, printing all the data in the 
rows. In IronPython 2.0 B3 it raises an exception.

IronPython 1:
C:\compile>c:\Binaries\ironpython\ipy.exe test_data.py
0 System.Data.DataRow
     0 A Big Boy Did It and Ran Away
1 System.Data.DataRow
     0 Affective Computing
2 System.Data.DataRow
     0 Clear and Present Danger

IronPython 2:
C:\compile>c:\Binaries\ironpython2\ipy.exe test_data.py
0 <System.Data.DataRow object at 0x000000000000002B [System.Data.DataRow]>
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "test_data.py", line 29, in test_data.py
TypeError: expected IEnumerator, got DataRow

Test script:

import clr

from System.Data import DataSet
from System.Data.Odbc import OdbcConnection, OdbcDataAdapter

connectString = (
    "DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};"
   "blah blah blah"

query = "SELECT title FROM books WHERE price > 2 ORDER BY title"

connection = OdbcConnection(connectString)
adaptor = OdbcDataAdapter(query, connection)
dataSet = DataSet()

for rowIndex, row in enumerate(dataSet.Tables[0].Rows):
    print rowIndex, row
    for colIndex, data in enumerate(row):
        print '    ', colIndex, data
