Can you also set the MONO_PATH environment variable to the location of 
the new assembly?  (It's both a suggestion and a question. :) )  This is 
what I usually do when I'm working on Monodoc so I don't have to touch 
my rpm-installed version.

I don't have a full understanding of how MONO_PATH interacts with the 
GAC, though.  Does it simply take precedence over the GAC?
