Hmm...  Looks like a problem with your setup.  Your /opt/mono/bin/mono
and /opt/mono/lib/mscorlib.dll don't match.

The 'monoresgen' it's picking up probably says:

  #! /bin/sh
  /opt/mono/bin/mono /opt/mono/bin/monoresgen "$@"

So, it shouldn't be picking anything from the _tmpinst tree at all.
And, it isn't: it's picking up /opt/mono/lib/mscorlib.dll.

So, at some point you must've installed a new mscorlib.dll into
/opt/mono/lib, since this wouldn't work otherwise.

I'll look into it.  But, I'm fairly sure this is a pre-existing ailment.
Not covered by this HMO ;-)
