I installed mono on a plain debian (problem exists in sarge and in etch) with
the installer. After this installation every call for example to vi warns with
the following warning:

Symbol `ospeed' has different size in shared object, consider re-linking

I invested a bit in the problem and found that it can be fixed by changing the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH to first contain /lib before the /opt/mono/lib.

After changing this the problem does no longer exist. I interpreted the warning
as follows:

A library in the /opt/mono/lib contains a symbol (ospeed) with a different size
(signature) than the one that the os programms are linked against. 
The librarys in question (because they contain the text ospeed) are the ones:
libmono.a, libmonodebuggerreadline.a, libncurses.so.5.3 

If you say it is a symbol from ncurses it is probably defined in

Vi is linked against libncurses.so.5.4 on sarge and libncurses.so.5.5 on etch.
