[Mono-devel-list] some strangeness with CustomAttributes

I'm not positive that I understand the second situation fully, but it sounds 
as though you are comparing a type in an external assembly against a type in 
the current assembly, but the current assembly does not link against the 
external one. In that case, I believe that the types are going to compare 
different. Two types with the same name and structure but in separate 
assemblies will compare different if they're both loaded from disk.

Again, I might be off-base as far as the situation goes.
