In my application i'm using configuration settings of the users section by
deriving a Settings class from System.Configuration.ApplicationSettingsBase. A
new instance of this class is created on startup of my application. 

The user is able to change that configuration via a configuration dialog that
also creates a new instance of the Settings class and then uses it to save the
new configuration settings. The application's instance of the Settings class
seems not to be notified of the configuration settings change - i.e. on closing
my application the Settings class overwrites the user.config file with empty

In .NET it works fine, in mono i have to pass the application's settings class
instance to the configuration dialog to get it working properly.

So mono seems to have problems with handling multiple instances of a Settings
