Hi Martin et al.,

I made some progress with the debugger on a MIPS platform.
Unfortunately, I'm facing a problem with the Cecil library currently.
When it tries to read the symbols of the corlib
(Cecil.AssemblyFactory.GetAssembly()), the following error occurs:

Cannot load symbol file `/usr/lib/mono/1.0/mscorlib.dll': Invalid XML
string: PermissionSet

Afterwards, null is returned.

What does this error mean? Do you have any suggestions how to track this
error down? I'm working with MDB 0.60, which uses Cecil Where
can I get the source of this version of Cecil?

Thanks + best regards,
