As a guess, it's an environment problem.  If you're
using /usr/local/bin/mono, then you likely need to have /usr/local/lib
in LD_LIBRARY_PATH, which (presumably) you do in your login shell, but
it likely is NOT being set when run during startup (because it's not
executing via your login shell, but the boot-time shell).

So, as a guess, edit /etc/init.d/mono and add:

	export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
