Description:
Connector/NET does not handle Saudi Hijri calendar correctly. 

Problem is class UmAlQuraCalendar. See also http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.globalization.umalquracalendar(VS.80).aspx:

The UmAlQuraCalendar class is nearly identical to the HijriCalendar class, except the Saudi Hijri calendar uses a table-based algorithm licensed from the Saudi government to calculate dates, can express dates to the year 1450 A.H., and does not support the HijriAdjustment property.

How to repeat:
Run NET application on a user account with regional settings "Arabic (Saudi Arabia)"

You'll get error:

Specified time is not supported in this calendar. It should be between 07/18/0622 00:00:00 (Gregorian date) and 12/31/9999 23:59:59 (Gregorian date), inclusive.
Parameter name: time

Suggested fix:
Provide workaround of calendar limitation for users with "Arabic (Saudi Arabia)" regional settings
