ASYNC is just a #ifdef symbol which gets defined when the -d option is
passed to the compiler (basic.exe in this case, which is basically the mcs
C# compiler).

You would need to look into the .cs files mentioned
in System.Xml.dll.sources to find out which pieces of the code light up
when that symbol is defined.
>From there on you can try reducing the test case to a small repro sample
that you can debug.

As Jo said in his email, I'd also suggest looking at the 4.4
release/branches since those will be the next stable release in the near
