You should use fastcgi from Mono's SVN[1]. It temporarily
fixes this problem by disallowing the autoconfiguration/automapping

The applications must be specified either using fastcgi-mono-server's
command line or by setting MONO_FCGI_APPLICATIONS environment variable.

A sample for lighttpd (see "bin-environment"):

fastcgi.server = (
         "" => ((
                 "socket" => "/tmp/fastcgi-mono-server",
                 "bin-path" => "/usr/bin/fastcgi-mono-server",
                 "bin-environment" => (
                         "MONO_FCGI_APPLICATIONS" => 
                 "max-procs" => 1,
                 "check-local" => "enable"

See "fastcgi-mono-server --help" for other env vars and settings.
