[Mono-list] Culure problem on sql server

Hi all,

I code the method:

		public static void Main(string[] args)
			string cnt = "here_is_the_correct_connection_string_to_my_sql_database";
			SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection(cnt);
			try {
				SqlCommand sqlCommand = new SqlCommand("select * from somtable",
				SqlDataReader reader = sqlCommand.ExecuteReader();		
				try {
					while (reader.Read()) {
						for (int i = 0; i < reader.FieldCount; i++) {
							System.Console.Write("-" + reader[i].ToString());
						System.Console.WriteLine(">>> Next record");
				} finally {
			} finally {

Just before connection will be open I get the following exception:

"Unhandled Exception: System.ArgumentException: Culture ID 1034
(0x040A) is not a supported culture."

This code was working fine for me two weeks ago. I don't understand
what is the reason this code fails. By other hand the culture code
(0x040A) named in the exception is the correct code (traditional
spanish) although I don't pass the culture parameter explicitaly.

Does anybody know what is the problem?

Thanks in advance.
