Make sure it's really using the correct GC (otool -L path/to/mono should
display it). Maybe you also need to set your DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Doesn't look like so, but please check as above. You may also want to
compile without gc (--with-gc=none) and post results. Random falures
like that could well be related to the GC not being compiled correctly
(or the wrong GC being used).

Probably, with one of the next releases. Some people are preparing
packages, I guess they'll announce them when they are ready.
