Using clr_new does work. However, for System::String, new and clr_new should be the same becuase System::String does not map to a Ruby builtin type, right?
System::String.clr_new(c, 0, 0)
=> ''

We do monkey patch System::String with methods and custom ctor (see ClrStringOps). I'll add this missing overload.
