No, I should have noted at the top that I tested on both Mono and .NET 2.0, and 
that I had included the dump of both and copied both lists as I felt the output 
would help both.  You have to get like 80% down the message before it makes any 
sense why I sent this to the Mono group at all, which is stupid.

In the future I will introduce my messages more clearly.

Correct.  I felt the debugging data may be useful to determine what .NET is 
trying to do and thus why it doesn't work in Mono.  (I know nothing about Mono 
architecturally or as a project)

Right.  Ok.

This isn't my project, I don't know what it's doing all that for.  I'll contact 
the people who make it.
