Okay, cool. I checked out the sourcecode and recompiled the Mono runtime.

Now it appears to load my own J# compiled assembly just fine.
The example is a simple J# application, performing only a simple

  System.out.println("Hello World!\n");

However Microsoft's assemblies (vjs*.dll) won't load still. *sigh*

** Message: Unknown heap type: #-

Unhandled Exception: System.NullReferenceException: A null value was found where
 an object instance was required

I find it interesting that there is no indication where this exception
occured. Also I think the Unknown Heap Type message should print which
assembly it tried to load and at what position in the file this error
