I have been fighting and googling this all day, and I am at somewhat of a

Essentially, I only got started using mono recently, and am doing so in more
of a testing capacity than anything.  I have simple (almost stupid) test app
that is basicaly two files:  


both are in the same directory.  I am attempting to simply get a value out
of the appSettings part of the Web.config.  

my Web.config looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
			<add key="test" value="helo1344" />

my index.aspx looks like this:

<%@ Page Language="C#" ContentType="text/html" ResponseEncoding="utf-8" %>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<title>stupid little test page</title>
<script language="c#" runat=server></script>

    Response.Write("test config reader: " +



when I put these on my windows server and run it, I get what i expect, a
page with the text:

test config reader: test1344

when I do this on my mono server, i get this:

test config reader: 

No errors are reported.  

I really dont know what to do here.  is this a bug in mono?  as far as I can
tell, i have everythign in mono configured correctly (using the zero
configuration method, so that I dont need to play with apache configs for
each virtual host).  

There is probably something staring me in the face, which I am going to feel
like moron #1 for not seeing...

everything is C#, mono is 1.0 (i had trouble getting Mono 2.0 to work yet on
my ubuntu box)

Can anyone help?
