[Mono-list] mono trying to mkdir /etc/mono/registry

I have a C# .NET application successfully running on mono, but it
requires certain directories to exist in /etc/mono.

In particular, these must exist, or it fails to run ("mkdir
/etc/mono/registry" from somewhere inside mono gets permission denied)

$ find /etc/mono/registry

If I run the C# app as root, it mkdirs these for me. Then I can run it
as an ordinary user no problems. Note that there are no files at all
in any of these directories.

Any idea how I can convince mono to not try to create these?
