 Mono programs will constantly fail. In my opinion, it would be
 advisable to fix it...
 What else can be used to specify a directory for shared libraries? It
 is not possible for us to always install our whole framework. Some
 shared library path similar to LD_LIBRARY_PATH would reasonable, I think.

+I didn't say the bug should not be fixed at all, though it's not clear
+to me whether the leading colon is really a bug.
+MONO_PATH is similar to LD_LIBRARY_PATH. The latter is evil, too,
+and, by using an incorrect format, you'll basically get the
+same trouble like with MONO_PATH.
+It's up to you to rely on MONO_PATH, but I'd prefer using the GAC
+or at least the private GAC (gacutil -user).
