 While looking into this, I also noticed that we do not use 
 ResXResourceReader.BasePath to resolve relative paths. We need this 
 change in order to implemented the /usesourcepath option of resgen(2).
 If anyone can point me to more docs on ResXFileRef, I'd be glad to 
 take a look at this one.

+What kind of docs do you need? I assume you are familiar with these:
+I'm not sure the issue you are raising related to /usesourcepath is
+the same as the one I'm having here (an thus may merit its own bug
+As a matter of fact, I think I may be hitting an /usesourcepath
+related issue. Using Nant to build my project, I get the following output:
+      [csc] Compiling 38 files to
+               [resgen] Error: Exception has been thrown by the target
+of an invocation.
+               [resgen] Inner exception: Could not find a part of the
+path "/tmp/Resources".
+This occurs when building a projec that was originally developed using
+Visual Studio 2005. It therefore has a file /Properties/Resources.resx
+that refers to resoures in /Resources, eg:
+  <data name="Expand_small" type="System.Resources.ResXFileRef,
+    <value>../Resources/Expand_small.bmp;System.Drawing.Bitmap,
+System.Drawing, Version=, Culture=neutral,
+  </data>
+I wasn't sure at first if it was a Mono or Nant issue, but apparantly
+it is a Mono issue. 
+I'd like to point out that this is an issue you are likely to hit when
+ building a Windows Forms application designed in Visual Studio 2005
+under Linux using Nant. 
+Anyway, thanks for the fast response.
