This has nothing to do with the default assembly dir path.

Mono will look also in the same dir where it loaded the referenced
assembly. Do you have a test that fails or are you just wondering about
it? If you find the above scenario to fail, file a bug in bugzilla
(I can't remember if the new code is in mono 0.11, it definitely works
with mono from cvs).
