+Summary: Runtime tries to locate Machine.config in wrong directory
+Description of Problem:
+On Windows, Mono tries to locate the machine.config in the wrong
+directory. In version 0.21 of Mono it tries to locate the machine.config
+in C:\cygwin\home\lalo\go-mono\install\etc\mono. Apparently this is
+something that corresponds with a setting at the time the runtime was
+build. I assume that the guy that built the windows setup package for
+mono, stores his machine.config at this location.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+Create an application that reads application settings from an application
+configuration file. This will cause the runtime to load the
+When the machine.config is not at that location you get the following
+warning (and the machine.config is not loaded, which causes exceptions
+later on) :
+** Warning **: cannot find C:\cygwin\home\lalo\go-
+Trying to load app config file...
+Mono should locate the machine.config in the Mono install directory. when
+Mono is installed on windows, it creates the following directory
+<drive letter>:\Mono-<mono version>\install with the following
+After installation the machine.config file is actually located in :
+<drive letter>:\Mono-<mono version>\install\etc\mono
+The runtime should actually load the machine.config from that location
+How often does this happen?
