 mcrxr instruction. For reasons that are unclear to everyone here 
 (and in violation of PPC specifications, as far as we can tell) it 
 does not seem to exist on the G5. I have also found a Usenet posting

+Ulrich: that is good info. mcrxr is present in both the spec from
+Motorola on ppc32 and in the ppc970-specific info from IBM.
+The G5 machine we run mono on is indeed running MacOSX, so we don't
+see the issue there. I'll try to get some info from Apple about that.
+As for the issues you had on the G3: current mono from cvs has the
+issue probably fixed, if you have time to try it out.
