Description of Problem:

On any box with Mono and the MySQL Connector/Net (Mono 2.0 Preview 2 and
Connector/Net 5.2.3) the membership provider is incapable of use.

The resulting error is displayed whenever membership provider use is
need (i.e. logging in or creating a new user).

Method not found:

The flaw lies in the fact that Mono does not have the necessary methods
in place to allow for hashed passwords. However, even when specifying to
use Clear or Encrypted passwords with the Connector/Net, the
Connector/Net still has code to call the absent method.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Simply install Mono and the Connector/Net. Make the MySQL membership
provider the default one.

2. Then, try any membership tasks like logging in or creating a new user.

Actual Results:

The error is displayed....

Method not found:

Expected Results:

Mono should have the System.Web.Security.Membership.get_HashAlgorithmType

How often does this happen? 

Every time the actions above are attempted.

Additional Information:

This method MUST be implemented to provide a seamless transition from .NET to
