Ok, thank you for advice. I checked the mono/tests and see that there 
are more tests than
in regression testsuite I downloaded from the site (it is said they are 
I will try them out.
Playing with mcs I got into alpha-specific problem. In my current 
aproach working with consts and
method addresses requires that the size of generated code should be less 
than 32kb. The mcs.exe has "yyparse" method
that was translated into 160kb size native code and aborted on internal 
assertions. :( I would have to
find a solution for that too.
