A bit of follow-up: today I finally did some more checking and found
out, that with Mono 2.0 and 2.0.1, most mono/bin/*.bat scripts result
in tons of error messages which suggest that the tools are run on
MS.Net instead of Mono. With 1.9 and 1.9.1, everything executes on
Mono as expected. Is this a regression?
