           Summary: After installing mono GDIpluss.dll not found ==> no
                    winforms app will run

           Version: 1.2
          Platform: i686
        OS/Version: Ubuntu
            Status: NEW

Description of Problem:
- after installing mono ( (using the bitrock installer) it turned out
that no WinForms app would run, all would complain about libgdiplus not being
found ...
- using MONO_LOG_LEVEL=debug i noticed that mono would search only for
libexif.so.9 ... i had libexif ... but libexif.so.12 ... creating a link to
libexif.so.9 resolved the problem for me ... so i was wondering, why would mono
ask specifically for so.9 and not .so? 

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. install the latest mono on ubuntu 7.04 or 6.10 ...
2. run any winforms app

Actual Results:
winforms app will not run, rather throws libgdi not found

Expected Results:
- either winforms app working
- or the installer warning about a specific libexif version needed

How often does this happen? 
every time
