Honestly, I *do* like this idea, and I'm trying.  I'm a C# developer, and have never been a mono developer (I've been a user of C#/mono, but never a contributor), and I'm finding the learning curve to be pretty steep...

In a recent thread, I pushed through to the point of being able to build the mono sources, build something linked against the mono source, and step through the mono source.  I tried to do the same thing this time, but when I step into AuthenticateAsClient, all the code is grayed out, and if I step one step further, the debugger crashes.  So I spent some time trying to figure out why I couldn't step into that code any further, and then I started sprinkling WriteLine statements...  And there *has* to be a better way.

I wouldn't say I gave up.  I posted here and thanks to Sebastien, got a workaround, which takes the pressure off so I can focus on our product deliverable.  But I'd like to get a better understanding of this mono source and how to properly debug it.  Or maybe I just need to suck it up and work through the WriteLine debugging workflow?  I hope not.
