I've just upgraded from 0.31 to beta1 on a WinXP machine. From XP's
cmd.exe console mono seems to run alright, but if I try to run from a
Cygwin console (on bash) I get the following:

$ mono
Pops up a windows alert with text: "mono.exe - Unable to locate component.
This application has failed to start because libglib-2.0-0.dll was not
found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem")

$ mcs
export: Files/Mono-Beta1/lib: bad variable name
export: Files/Mono-Beta1/etc/mono: bad variable name
C:/Program: not found

(-> I'd reckon this is due to mcs script exporting Windows-like path
variables with spaces without quoting)

And, talking about scripts...another thing: Mr. Icaza, better check the
beta bin/ directory, because i'd reckon there are lots of execs hard-coded
to your /home };P

$ al
exec: /home/miguel/mono/mb/install/bin/mono: not found
$ cat al
exec /home/miguel/mono/mb/install/bin/mono c:/mono/mb/install/lib/al.exe "$@"

This didn't happen in previous releases. (I think maybe these have slipped
through in the heat of the moment of the beta release)
