Yep, that's exactly what I was observing.

What I did was just make VS2003 (not using 2005 here yet) projects
from scratch. And I made it not require cygwin (just bison for
genmdesc/monoburg). So far we have no problems running Visual Studio
compiled mono in release mode.

Someone should push me strong enough to find some time and contribute
the project files back I guess :)
