you should be aware that constructs like the following :

using System;
Text.StringBuilder sb = new Text.StringBuilder ();

do not compile under ms.net ( csc.exe ). You need to explicitly import 
the whole namespace like:

using System.Text;
StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder ();

the fact that it compiles with mcs is really a bug. I logged this a 
while ago http://bugs.ximian.com/show_bug.cgi?id=52622 but forgot to 
notify you as well.
