The thread is the thread that I am being called on and am  
subsequently attempting to initialize the JIT on, so it was not  
registered with Mono before.

However, earlier this year we talked about a bug I reported (http:// 
bugzilla.ximian.com/show_bug.cgi?id=77354 - comments in #77638),  
which to my understanding led to the change of native threads being  
automatically registered with the Mono runtime, making my Cocoa based  
applications happy since 1.1.17 or .16.
