How exactly do they fail?

Er, and 0.6 of what? MonoDevelop? And are you using packages (whose?) or
did you build it yourself?

I'm not sure exactly where the rewriting occurs, but it's controlled by
the foo.dll.config files. So in addition to gtk-sharp.dll, you should
also have a gtk-sharp.dll.config (in the same directory in your GAC)
giving the mapping from Windows DLL names to Linux .so names.
