[Mono-list] Strong name support ?

I've recently updated mono & mcs from CVS and now mcs can't compile my
program anymore.

I use the attribute:

[assembly: AssemblyKeyName("mykey")]

to sign my assembly. Previously the attribute was just ignored, now the
compiler complains like this:

Unhandled Exception: System.IndexOutOfRangeException: Array index is out of
in <0x001df> Mono.Security.Cryptography.CryptoConvert:ToCapiPublicKeyBlob
in <0x0006b> Mono.Security.Cryptography.CryptoConvert:ToCapiKeyBlob
in <0x0002d> Mono.Security.StrongName:get_PublicKey ()
in <0x00441> System.Reflection.Emit.AssemblyBuilder:SetCustomAttribute
in <0x00cd4> Mono.CSharp.Attribute:ApplyAttributes
in <0x001f9> Mono.CSharp.RootContext:EmitCode ()
in <0x0080e> Mono.CSharp.Driver:MainDriver (string[])
in <0x0001b> Mono.CSharp.Driver:Main (string[])

I found the sn.exe utility and ran the following commands to create the
keypair and put it into "mykey" container.

mono sn.exe -k mykey.snk
mono sn.exe -i mykey.snk mykey

but it didn't help. I'm running RedHat 9.

Any advice?
