In the documentation for the <securityTokenHandlers> element (, it is stated that the "name" attribute can be used to specify SecurityTokenHandler types for the ActAs and OnBehalfOf collections. In practice, however, this does not work.

It turns out that you can manipulate the collection if you stick to the built-in types, but attempting to add a custom type to the collection triggers the error. I attached a project with a minimal reproduction recipe.
