well afaik Mono does not provide a class named BaseConfigurationRecord,
so everything under this (in the previous stack trace) comes from your
code (or 3rd party code). Therein lies the culprit ;-)

Our definition* of 3rd party could be different - I meant not "not Mono"
and "not your code". I'm 100% sure Mono does not use WindowsIdentity
anywhere (except providing it inside corlib and some unit tests) so I
suspect the problem is in your code (or the extra, third party, code
you're using).


* and that includes any Microsoft .NET assembly you could be using under
