 1. Remove the prameters "blah" and "additional prameter" from the call to 
 the constructor of MyAttribute
 2. Remove the AttributeUsage attribute from the MyAttribute class
 3. Remove all items from the string array (the string "crash")
 4. Make the string array an object array
 5. Replace the string array with an array of some other type, such as int
+------- Additional Comments From dmitchell at logos.com  2006-12-14 20:45 -------
+Upon further investigation this actually seems to be a problem with 
+the Mono C# compiler, and it is a problem in the Windows version, 
+after all.
+For some reason, when encoding the attributes for the string array, 
+the Mono compiler inserts an extra 0x0E (indicator for string data 
+type) into the bytestream for each string in the array. This, in 
+turn causes the string decoder to believe that it has a string with 
+14 characters, resulting in the dreaded "off by n" problem.
