Now that sounds more like it.

I've just upgraded to 1.0.5 (the version currently in Debian Sid) on an
XP1600+, but I still only get ~12 calls per second with the attached
(very simple) code.
 Build and run with:
  mcs -t:library -out:thing.dll thing.cs
  mcs -r:thing.dll -r:System.Runtime.Remoting server.cs
  mcs -r:thing.dll -r:System.Runtime.Remoting client.cs
  xterm -e mono server.exe &
  time mono client.exe
to time 200 calls.
It takes ~16seconds realtime on my machine, but with only 0.467s user
and 0.037s system time it's basically sitting there mostly doing nothing
(top shows 99% idle)!

If you can't see anything wrong with the code (which is essentially
straight out of the OReilly "Programming C#" book) then I suspect
something bogus about the Debian setup.  The mono system itself seems to
be zippy enough: I can sum a billion ints in a couple of seconds.
For what it's worth, mono --profile on the client.exe shows most of the
16 seconds runtime is made up of 2800 calls at ~5.6ms each to
Any ideas ?
