I will try to commit it later today.  Unless, someone else beats me first.  

Do you have a simple re-runnable test case?  It does not have to be nunit.  Just a simple program will do.  A test case that fails without the fix but works with the fix.

These days, I use the virtual machine with opensuse and mono from mono-project.com download page.  I don't even both installing oracle on it.  I just install the oracle instant client, set envrionment variables, make sure mono's etc/mono/config file points to the correct libclntsh.so file, and that I have a tnsnames.ora file poining to a remote oracle database.  My environment variables I set are: PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, and TNS_ADMIN.
