You're right, the patch has not been applied yet. I've to apply the 
patch to my sources.
Btw, how mono versions works?
The last stable version, according to the website is 2.10.9, every 
other versions after that is supposed to be unstable, am I right?
The last 2.1x version announced is 2.11.4. The 2.12 does not exists, 
it has been renamed to 3.0?
In one of his blog posts Miguel says that the trunk is merged only 
with working changes, so it should be less unstable than older 
unstable versions.
All these questions fall in the last one, for a production 
environment is safer to install 2.10.9, the last stable but without 
recent patches and, from today, with no more support or the 3.0.x, 
the beta version but fixed and checked?
Sorry for these banal questions but I've to plan upgrades and I would 
like to do the correct thing.
