 It would be nice if you gave us a few pointers, so we can run your
 regression tests as well, for instance, we could catch all the
 warning assertions and try to find out what is wrong.
 Thanks for your patience with Mono.

+You can download Ice for C# at www.zeroc.com. You will also need to 
+grab Ice for C++ and build the slice2cs translator. No need to build 
+all of Ice for C++. Just build the IceUtil, Slice, and slice2cs 
+targets. You need to put slicecs and icecpp into your path once you 
+have built them.
+I got most of the bugs I reported by running the slicing/exceptions, 
+location, and fault tolerance tests. slice/exceptions seems to be 
+particularly good a exposing these problems.
+Note that I'm running the tests on a dual-CPU RH8 machine. I suspect 
+that you will not see the problems on either a single-CPU machine or 
+with RH9.
+Also, you'll need patience when running the tests. The failures I've 
+seen appear to happen only once very few hundred runs.
