[Mono-list] Poor RSACryptoServiceProvider performance

I've been trying to move a C# .NET project over to run on Mono, and I've
been quite impressed with how well it's done. A few problems:

- The performance of the RSACryptoServiceProvider seems abysmal. Just
starting up and reading a key using FromXmlString is really really slow,
like orders of magnitude slower than under XP/.NET. Any ideas why this
might be? Is there a profiler for Mono?

- XML deserialization is unimplemented. I've started looking into adding
this, but if anyone else has pointers or is working on it, please

Best regards,
