[Mono-dev] Random mono apache errors

>From sources (

			if (key == "wsdl" || key == "schema" || key == "code" || key == "disco")

#if NET_2_0
			string help = WebServicesSection.Current.WsdlHelpGenerator.Href;
			string path = Path.GetDirectoryName
			string help = WSConfig.Instance.WsdlHelpPage;
			string path = Path.GetDirectoryName (WSConfig.Instance.ConfigFilePath);

			string physPath = Path.Combine (path, help);

So probably WebServicesSection.Current.WsdlHelpGenerator.Href is returning
null or ConfigurationManager.OpenMachineConfiguration().FilePath is
returning null.

For the first case, as this is read from current configuration which can be
reread from time to time as any part of the configuration chain changes it
is possible that either some of those MonoTodos in
making things flaky:

                [MonoTODO ("probably verifies the Href property here,
after deserializing?")]

		protected override void DeserializeElement (XmlReader reader, bool
			base.DeserializeElement (reader, serializeCollectionKey);

		protected override void Reset (ConfigurationElement parentElement)
			base.Reset (parentElement);

or some locking is missing to avoid reading an incomplete current
configuration instance...

As for the second case after much navigating through sources it comes down
to calling an internal call 'string get_machine_config_path ()' which I
don't have time now to try to explore...

Hope it helps,

Rafael Teixeira
