+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: RSACryptoServiceProvider fails to persist via CspProviderFlags.UseMachineKeyStore
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you
+are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Install Mono (mine is not in default /usr but rather /usr/local/mono)
+2. Try to persist RSA via CspProviderFlags.UseMachineKeyStore
+Actual Results:
+Unhandled Exception: System.Security.Cryptography.CryptographicException:
+Could not create machine key store '/usr/share/.mono/keypairs'. --->
+System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path "/usr/share/.mono"
+is denied.
+Expected Results:
+Key pair being saved somewhere quitely
+How often does this happen? 
+Everytime unless I create the directory.
+Additional Information:
+The quick fix was to create /usr/share/.mono and /usr/share/.mono/keypairs
+as it didn't try and create them.  But the thing to note is my installation
+prefix is /usr/local/mono so /usr/share/.mono doesn't seem right either way.
