Agreed.  Thanks a bunch for this patch.

Some bad news though.  I just tried it out and got a failure:

monoresgen Npgsql/NpgsqlState.resx

** (/opt/mono/bin/monoresgen.exe:28697): WARNING **: cant resolve
internal call to
"System.Reflection.Assembly::load_with_partial_name(string,System.Security.Policy.Evidence)" (tested without signature also)

Your mono runtime and class libraries are out of sync.
The out of sync library is: /opt/mono/lib/mscorlib.dll

This error occurred during:

tmpinst=`cd _tmpinst && pwd` ; \
PATH=$tmpinst/bin:$PATH ; export PATH ; \
cd ./../mcs && make

I was able to complete the make bootstrap by first doing a cd mono/mono;
and a make install.  After that, the make bootstrap finished.

So it looks like there's a missing step in the process still.  Any
ideas, Raja?

If you want to try to reproduce it, my build was a cvs up mono mcs from
around 8:30 tonight CST bootstrapping from a mono-0.91 tarball install.
