Thanks. Well, the first issue I can disregard as a non-issue, but the second
is more problematic.
The Mono.Security.dll assembly comes out of the download of the installer
mono-1.0.6-gtksharp-1.9.2-win32-0.3.exe off the www.mono-project.com. I
pulled down a second copy just to make sure nothing got messed up the first
time. They both produce the same MD5 hash so they should be absolutely
identical (which is what I would have expected). I unstalled Mono and then
re-installed using the second copy. I still get the same "Strong name
validation failed for assembly 'Mono.Security'" error. Do you think this is
something I need to report as a bug?
