After fixing couple of serialization differences on server side (already in git
master/mono-2-10), I get to see this exception at most (not 100% reproducible,
but about 20-50% ratio):

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an
  at System.Array.Copy (System.Array sourceArray, Int32 sourceIndex,
System.Array destinationArray, Int32 destinationIndex, Int32 length) [0x00104]

This NRE should not really happen as WCF serializer merely invokes
MethodInfo.GetCustomAttributes(bool) which could be also invoked in different
threads (I guess I'm right here, on that I don't have to instantiate Type or
MethodInfo objects for each thread).

I still don't see the exact exception in KnownTypeCollection, but I have added
some locks on modifying the collection, so it may be fixed on WCF side.
