 UseMachineKeyStore (as a second/last chance).

+The best fix would be to return a RSAManaged instance. However I,
+sadly, expect that a lot of code simply typecast the returning RSA
+instance into a RSACryptoServiceProvider (which would break them).
+In the mean time you can try using:
+   RSACryptoServiceProvider.UseMachineKeyStore = true;
+in your code. The static UseMachineKeyStore property was added in 1.1
+to act as a global flag for the key store. I cannot change this
+globally inside Mono.Security.dll but any application could do it.
