[Mono-aspnet-list] ProfileCommon not automatically generated under XSP

I am building my ASP.Net 2.0 application using Visual Studio as my IDE. As I
make changes I like to test with both the development server included with
Visual Studio, and also with XSP running inside the mono runtime in Windows.
My presumption is that testing this way I can be sure to write code that
works on .Net hosts and Mono hosts.

Currently I am working on adding a feature that uses Profiles, and I have
things working using the MySQL Profile Provider under the Visual Studio web

So far I have added the following to my web.config

    <profile defaultProvider="MySQLProfileProvider">
        <remove name="MySQLProfileProvider"/>
        <add name="MySQLProfileProvider"
MySql.Web,Version=,Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=C5687FC88969C44D"
             applicationName="/" />
        <group name="GameStats">
          <add name="GamesJoined" type="Int32" serializeAs ="String"

Once that was done inside visual studio, I was able to start using the
ProfileCommon object which appears to be automatically generated by the
compiler. In the code I can then do the following:

        ProfileCommon profile = (ProfileCommon.Create("ValidUsername") as
        LabelUsername.Text = profile.UserName; 
        TextBoxGamesJoined.Text = profile.GameStats.GamesJoined.ToString();

This works great under the visual studio developement server, but when I
attempt to load a page with this code on XSP I get the error message:

Compiler Error Message: CS0246: The type or namespace name `ProfileCommon'
could not be found. Are you missing a using directive or an assembly

Does anyone have advice about what I can do to get profile code that works
on both .Net and Mono hosts?
