Not sure if this helps or not, but I've seen cross-platform remoting 
issues caused by serialization incompatibility - private member names 
differ across implementations so SerializationInfo contains different 
keys.  Could it be that a SerializationException is getting 'eaten' due 
to multi-threading or similar situation?
