You can ignore the first warning, as it's non-critical (though it does
trigger a memory leak on Mono 1.2.5). The real problem is with the
Mono runtime not being compatible with the libxml2 library on your
system. It looks like other people have had similar problems on Ubuntu
7.10: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libxml2/+bug/151045
