[Mono-list] Loading System.Data

This is a .NET question more than a mono question, I'm hoping someone
can shed some light on this:
I'm trying to load Assemblies from the GAC using System.Load(string).
I'm using the code from the docs for that method:
Here's my test case:
public static void Main ()
Assembly ass = Assembly.Load ("System.Data");
Pretty simple, huh? But I'm getting an exception (see below). This
worked fine in beta2 - I just upgraded to release.
Can someone try to run this for me and tell me if they get the same
Is there any other way to load an assembly like this? I tried
Assembly.LoadFrom() but it can't find it either.
Unhandled Exception: System.IO.FileNotFoundException: File or assembly
name System.Data, or one of its dependencies, was not found.
File name: "System.Data"
