Fair enough. I'm not used to using commercial software. :)

Yeah, I tried tracking that down, but monodis is crashing. The stock
mono compiler seems to crash trying to AOT-compile that dll as well,
though in a different way, and the failing assert there references a
clearly long out of date line of code. I'm building mono from source
now and I'm going to see whether that crashes in the same way. That'll
be much easier to debug.

That's pretty likely. There's a ton of stuff in OpenJDK.Core.dll that
I'm not using.
