Does your runtime have support dor ICU? You need libicu installed...
Also, can you provide a test case? The simpler the better.

+Recompiling with ICU installed fixes the problem.
+I would ask that you consider changing the exception from
+System.ArgumentException to a custom exception stating ICU is not
+installed, if that is the case.
+Not knowing that ICU is the reason could cause many others to look
+at this and report it as a bug. I know i've seen it once before in
+mailing list archives and never saw the person get his issue
+resolved (atleast publically stated.). Making
+a "Mono.IcuNotInstalledException: Install ICU and Recompile Mono" or
+something like that would be very helpful to the end user, and
+atleast give them a direction to look at to fix the problem.
