Yes, because with mono there is no need for that.
Assuming there isn't a bug in mono that makes it allocate more memory
than actually requested, your is a kernel and system configuration issue: 
you may want to check your ulimit settings, or add more swap, or tune
the overcommit handling of the kernel, or tune the OOM killer (if that's
the one that kills the program).
