           Summary: vm crashes with xceed chart
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Windows Vista
            Status: NEW

          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: Windows.Forms

Description of Problem:
Mono 2.0 virtual machine always crashes when instantiating the ChartControl
class of the Xceed Chart library. Tested on Vista 64, code built with Visual
Studio 2008 (set to produce x86 code). The same program runs fine with
Microsoft's VM.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Build this program:

using System;
using Xceed.Chart;
namespace ConsoleApplication1
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
                Xceed.Chart.Licenser.LicenseKey = "(your license key here)";
                var c = new ChartControl();
            catch (Exception e)
            Console.Out.WriteLine("Execution done");

You will need the Xceed Chart library. A trial version is freely available from
Xceed's web site.

2. Run the program.

Actual Results:
The VM crashes upon executing "new ChartControl()". No exception is caught; the
program terminates and Windows starts a debug report.

Expected Results:
I'd expect the program to always output "Execution done" and then close; in
case of problems with the class library, it should output an exception message,
then "Execution done", and then close. In no circumstance it should crash.

How often does this happen? 

Additional Information:
It is important that the compiler is set to "x86", as the Xceed Chart library
doesn't work with 64-bit code. However, please note that even in that case, on
the MS VM it throws an exception rather than crashing outright.
