XP has "CLI-aware" loader so mscoree::_CorExeMain stub is just ignored on that system.
At the same time there is a bug in Mono PE generation code, "start: jmp [start]" is generated instead of jmp [_CorExeMain].
To illustrate: after changing byte at 0x202 to 0x10 in Ajay's hello.exe it will run just fine on 2k and 9x systems.
There are still some problems with running MCS/mono generated executables under CE - under that system,
loader just enters infinite loop after launching mono-generated executable.
