[Mono-list] mono wsdl.exe gags on eBay SOAP WSDL

Hey guys,

I'm trying to see if I can use Mono to write an app that consumes the SOAP
API provided by my employer. I'm not having any luck. After trying
unsuccessfully to use mcs to compile a command-line C# app originally
written with Visual Studio .NET on Windows, I decided it might make sense to
just use mono's wsdl.exe utility to create a SOAP client wrapper class that
would be more to mono's liking.

But the command:

  wsdl.exe http://developer.ebay.com/webservices/latest/eBaySvc.wsdl

provides no output (besides the "Mono Web Services Description Language
Utility" header), and no error message. Running the utility on a known-good
WSDL file (such as
http://www.gama-system.com/webservices/stockquotes.asmx?wsdl) does generate
the expected client wrapper class on my system (which is Windows XP).

Any ideas?
