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

After some testing I have discovered that it is the use of Groups in the
profile properties in the web.config that causes the problem. If I modify my
web.config properites section as follows, then the code works fine in XSP in

  <add name="GamesJoined" type="Int32" serializeAs ="String"

Which means that as a work around I can just not use property groups, which
is less than ideal. I have found that removing the groups from the profile
properties section corrects the problem on both mono 2.2 and, so now
I need to determine if this is caused by the profile provider or some code
inside Mono itself.
