[Mono-list] NAnt hangs under fakeroot

Hi Robert,

I already set the MONO_SHARED_DIR variable (to the current directory,
though): see
Not doing so would cause a Mono crash, but now it just hangs. NAnt runs
fine when not running as fakeroot, and on Ubuntu (and probably Debian
unstable) it does run under fakeroot.

The main issue is that I'm not sure how to debug this issue (because it
apparently hangs). Can I somehow "attach" to this process and see where
it is stuck?
