[Mono-dev] Exception in XmlSerializer (only with arm cross-compile , x86 no issue)

I managed to cross build and run successfuly simple application arm
(using 3.8.0 mono version without any modifications).
On running a simple hello world it works fine. But then running the
required application throws the following error.
I should also note that I copied the class library from host in order
for it to works becuase the deplyment (make install) is missing all
these dlls.
I also see that the same source version 3.8.0 on my PC , I manage to
run the application without this exception (in PC x86), so I suspect
that it is related to the fact that the same source code is cross
build to arm (armv5) maybe.

This is the log when running the application:

# mono /home/modem/Elbit/Elbit_test/Elbit.Jdss.TestConsoleMonoNoUI.exe

My IP is
Running on Unix
Running with the Mono VM
.NET Framework Assemblies Path:

I see that there is bug report about XmlSerializer, but this same
version works in PC (x86) without issues, so I am not sure what it
