[Mono-aspnet-list] Postback not working properly on Ubuntu

There are known issues between mod_mono and mod_rewrite. This article
suggests adding the [PT] flag to the rule to work-around the bug.

I configured these rules in .htaccess (added PT to both rules)
# remove .aspx; use THE_REQUEST to prevent infinite loops
RewriteCond %{THE_REQUEST} ^GET\ (.*)\.aspx\ HTTP
RewriteRule (.*)\.aspx$ $1 [PT,R=301]
# add .aspx to access file, but don't redirect
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}.aspx -f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !/$
RewriteRule (.*) $1\.aspx [PT,L]

However, it doesn't solve it in my case. When requesting the .aspx page, I
get: "Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand."
When requesting the page without .aspx, the same problem remains where it
adds .aspx after a postback.

Mono clearly has bugs with MOD_REWRITE and with RequiredFieldValidators. I
am running Mono 2.10.5. Are there any plans to fix these two bugs anytime
soon, or are there ways to work-around them?
