[Mono-dev] Bug 10784

I don't think it's as easy as removing the assert.

For one, the interface ID returned by mono_get_unique_iid() is stored as a
guint16 (
which means you only have 0-65,535 values there. I'm not familiar enough
with the runtime codebase to say which other problems you'll run into if
you try to fix this.
