What is the Mono version you're using? ProfileCommon has been supported in Mono since 2006.
If you're using the latest mono and still see the issue, then this is a bug - please file a bug 
(http://mono-project.com/Bugs) with a self-contained test case attached. If you're using some old 
version of Mono, please upgrade.
