[Mono-list] VS.NET project built with Mono

I build my solutions in VS.NET and deploy on mono.

The main things is that everything in the bin must be
compiled using Rebuild not just Build. If you are
using any third party dlls they also must be compiled
with Rebuild. Mono doesn't like incremental builds
that you get with normal Build.

Hope it helps,
