That data must be incorrect. MonoType is fixed-size (16 bytes on 32 bit
systems), so the data is inconsistent. Having 2826 instances is
reasonable (though it's a hint that you or somebody else is doing
GeTypes() on the assemblies and that should be avoided). The 543 MB
for MonoType is totally bogus.
