[Mono-list] Starting processes with parameters from Mono 0.31 and mono-0.31.99.20040331

Are you using Windows or Linux?
As I understand UseShellExecute, when set to "false", Process.Start() will
treat the filename as a binary image and attempt to execute it directly. This
is really the only option that makes sense under "vanilla" Unix.
On Windows, when UseShellExecute == true, it causes Windows to use the
"windows shell" to process the filename. If the filename is a document,
Windows will attempt to use an appropriate application to open the document.
GNOME and KDE both provide mechanisms equivalent to the Windows Shell from
what I understand, but whether to use these or not (and how to choose which
one if both are present) seems unclear.
Rotor under Linux simply throws an exception if UseShellExecute == true.
