[Mono-dev] AppDomain Loading Issue

Hi All,

Beginning with 2.2 and still in 2.4, there is a problem with loading
complex sets of NUnit tests under Mono.

I've narrowed it down to the use of multiple directories, requiring
setting PrivateBinPath for the test AppDomain. When this is set to
one or more directories, relative to the ApplicationBase, Mono 2.2
and 2.4 give a message indicating that System.dll cannot be found.
This is an odd message, of course, since System.dll is in the GAC.

So far, I've been unable to duplicate this with any simple test,
so I'm wondering if anybody has any ideas about it. Has something
changed in how assemblies are located and loaded since 2.0.1?

Alternatively, I can submit a bug, but I hate to tell you that
you need the entire source of NUnit to replicate it. :-)
