Miguel, thank you very much for your answer. I have filed a few bug reports. 
The online problem I cannot reproduce right now is when aspx files get 
locked after editing on the fly on Windows... I will file it when it happens 
again. I am happy to support Mono any way I can.

I have another problem or question along these lines:
After login I call

So the user does not have to login again when checking "autologin". But 
isn't that a security problem? Because the password of the user isn't stored 
in the cookie so everybody could fake the username in a mono application? I 
have taken a look into the FormsAuthentication.cs and the ticket is not 
encrypted right now. Is there any plan to implement this?

//if (protection == FormsProtectionEnum.None)
   return GetHexString (allTicket.ToString ());
//TODO: encrypt and validate

BTW: Is there an easy way to compile System.Web.dll - i.e. is it all managed 

Thanks again
