[Mono-list] Web app performance profiling

Bellow I put all my output which I got while trying to profile mod_mono.
I tried it with mono 1.1.15 & mod_mono 1.1.14, then I upgrated both to
1.1.16, but exactly the same crash remains. What might be the reason of
this? Seems like a bug. Should I report it to bugzilla?

Sincerely yours,
Andriy Tkach

Got a SIGSEGV while executing native code. This usually indicates
a fatal error in the mono runtime or one of the native libraries
used by your application.
