It's probably an encoding issue. However I can't tell if it's:
* a Mono (.NET classes) encoding issue; or
* a Mono (ASN.1) decoding; or
* both Mono issue(s); or (finally ;-)
* a Windows/OpenSSL encoding issue (e.g. invalid ASN.1/X.509 encoding
but accepted by "lax" parsers);
without the certificate.

Please fill a bug report and attach the certificate.
