App that demonstrates the problem

Redirecting an assembly in the application configuration file with the
<codeBase> tag doesn't work with Mono.

The attached files demonstrate the problem: 
- AssemblyOne.dll contains a class MyClass with a method DoIt() that prints the
text "This is AssemblyOne".
- AssemblyOne.new.dll simulates a different version of AssemblyOne.dll. It is
identical except that it prints "This is the new AssemblyOne".
- AssemblyRedirect.exe just calls MyClass.DoIt().
- AssemblyRedirect.exe.config redirects AssemblyOne to AssemblyOne.new.dll:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
         <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
                        <assemblyIdentity name="AssemblyOne"/>
                         <codeBase version="" href="AssemblyOne.new.dll"

The expected behavior is the output of "This is the new AssemblyOne" and this
is exactly what you get with Microsofts .NET on Windows.

If I run the test app on Mono the output is "This is AssemblyOne".
