 Maybe write CultureInfo.CurrentCulture.Name out to the console before
 this line on the affected system to see if it's long enough?
 If that doesn't do it, would it be possible to get a stacktrace using
 mono --debug so that line numbers are included?

+Thanks Jonathan.
+Your comment prompted me to check my system locale setting for all of
+these several Gentoo systems upon which I did this test.  They were
+unset and this was the reason for the exception.  With the system
+locale set to something (currently LC_ALL=en_US.utf8), the application
+starts up as expected.
+It seems that instead of a bug in Mono, I may have found a bug in the
+default Gentoo layout which I'll pass along word of to them.  In their
+past releases, they have had the system locale set by default, but I
+think that there may have been a recent change in that based on my
+experience and their documentation at
+http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/guide-localization.xml#doc_chap3_pre2 for
+these systems were not even set to "C" as described there.
+I wonder if my experience here may also be an indicator about a design
+problem in Open Dental(R) in terms of whether or not the application
+should make an explicit check of the system locale setting before
+proceeding on to execute code that will depend upon having it be set
+to something.  This is just a nascent thought without much
+investigation, but I'm curious to get your feedback on how other
+applications that depend on Mono handle such issues.
+Thanks again for your comment and I'll be sure to feed this
+information back to the people at Gentoo, and it will definitely lead
+to some changes in GNUdental(tm) and perhaps also Open Dental(R).
