The fix is definitely in trunk (I'm not sure about the 1.1.15 release),
but your test case reveals another one:

Unhandled Exception: System.ArgumentException: key 
at HKEY_DYN_DATA\software\nunit.org\nunit\2.4
in <0x000e8> Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey:DeleteSubKeyTree (System.String 
in (wrapper remoting-invoke-with-check) 
Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey:DeleteSubKeyTree (string)

RegistryKey.GetSubKeyNames() returns unix paths instead of key names.

Please file a bug.
