[Mono-dev] Problem with Configuration Manager

Hi to all.

I need to get a boundled application with mono on the 2.0 environment.
Making some test with this environment I noted that the
ConfigurationManager seems not work in the boundled application.

I make some test using

mkbuild2 --deps --static -o app.exe MyApp.exe


mkbuild2 --deps --static -o app.exe MyApp.exe -f MyApp.exe.config
With both the command my application not read the configuration parameter.

Down I put the sample code that I use.

It's a bug or not? For me is not a problem using a xml reader but I
need do know to not make the same work two times ....

P.S. Sorry for my english.

Best Regard, Torello Querci

using System;
using System.Configuration;

namespace ConfigurationBug
	class MainClass
		public static void Main(string[] args)
			if (apps != null) {
				Console.WriteLine("The configuration file is found.");
				object obj=apps["application_key"];
				if (obj!=null) {
					Console.WriteLine("The configuration key \"application_key\" has
the value: "+obj.ToString());
				} else {
					Console.WriteLine("The configuration key \"application_key\" is
missing :(.");
			} else {
				Console.WriteLine("There is not configuration file :(.");
