no clue - but keep in mind that MonoTODO means this is _incomplete_
compared to MS implementation, but not that it's non-working. Only
actual testing, on Mono, will show if it's complete enough for you.

In this case it looks like the author knew, likely from MSDN
documentation, that the code _should_ requires some

Now Mono does not support Code Access Security (CAS) so
having EnvironmentPermission would not change anything (if this is the
only incomplete thing). This should not be an issue unless your
application needs to run under limited trust, since all Mono code runs,
right now, at full trust.

A bit hard to answer since you did not provide them.
