+Summary: gmcs dies with "failed to create shadow copy"
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you
+are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+Starting with mono 1.1.17 gmcs won't compile anymore. On three different
+systems I get the following errors:
+Unhandled Exception: Mono.CSharp.InternalErrorException:
+CarpeNoctem.RLActionHandler.GetNextState(ActionFrame, int) --->
+System.ExecutionEngineException: Failed to create shadow copy (mkstemp).
+Unhandled Exception: System.ExecutionEngineException: Failed to create
+shadow copy (mkstemp).
+The code that produces this error was introduces in r64262.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Create a some program, hello world, for example.
+2. Compile and provide a library reference that is not in the GAC but in
+the MONO_PATH env. The library must not be passed with an absolute path.
+3. gmcs dies
+Actual Results:
+gmcs throws the exception mentioned above
+Expected Results:
+gmcs compiles the program
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+The new shadow copy mechanism seems to check the GAC but not the MONO_PATH
