 access to import new certificates to the machine store contradicts that
 Either the location of the machine cert stores or more generally
 Environment.SpecialFolder.CommonApplicationData, should be switched to a
 location under /etc (mono_get_config_dir()?).
+------- Additional Comments From sebastien at ximian.com  2006-11-20 09:48 -------
+shouldn't map to /usr/share (but changing this may break a lot of
+things). However CommonApplicationData still looks the best place to
+store machine certificates so I'm closing this issue (feel free to
+open one for "CommonApplicationData versus /usr/share".
+Please note that while the "machine store" concept is required for
+compatibility with MS framework, I strongly discourage it's use
+because 98% of the time it isn't used correctly - and this can affect
+*all* mono applications on a system.
