[Mono-devel-list] Red Hat 9 + LD_ASSUME_KERNEL => Monodevelop fails to load

Following the release notes for install of Firebird rdbms 1.5 on redhat 
9 includes an instruction to add a parameter LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 to 
/etc/profile. This is to do with Native POSIX Thread Library components 
in RH9. (I don't really understand this, just repeating for info.)

If I do this then Monodevelop will start to load (mono splash icon) and 
then stop. Remove the LD_ASSUME_KERNEL and it starts properly again.

This is supposed to alleviate the issue of not being able to run mono 
with the firebird data provider via localhost; running mono programmes 
via a networked windows box is fine. Running the exe outside monodevelop 
as root also runs without error.

Is this a bug or am I missing something? Thanks.
