[Mono-list] Anyone Else Have Problems With MySQL TEXT Fields?

I'm using the ByteFX connector to access a MySQL database from my ASP 
.NET website on Mono.  Previously, I had run into a problem where my 
DataBinder.Eval(Container.DataItem, "FieldName") calls would result in 
an "Unknown target conversion type" error if the field in the database 
was of type TEXT.  I was able to get around this at the time by using 
CAST(FieldName AS CHAR) in the query.

However, it seems that the problem is still somewhat intermittent.  I 
added a little more complication to the query (just a couple INNER JOINs 
and WHERE clauses, nothing major) and the error is once again 
persisting.  Has anyone dealt with this before and been able to work 
around it?  Any help would be much appreciated.
