+I found the two causes of this bug. The first was a problem in how
+Novell.Directory.Ldap.Utilclass/ResoucesHandler.cs was loading the
+resource messages.
+The second issue was that for SSL support in 
+Novell.Directory.Ldap/Connection.cs it tries to load the Mono.Security
+assembly. It does this by calling
+Assembly.LoadFrom("Mono.Security.dll"). That only checks the current
+application directory. 
+The better thing to do would be to check the current application
+directory AND the GAC. That can be done with via
+Assembly.LoadWithPartialName ("Mono.Security")
+I've created a patch that fixes both of these problems.
