Hi, thank you for your answer.

There is my service model configuration. I use default basicHttpBinding

                <behavior name="bAuthentication">
					<serviceMetadata httpGetEnabled="true" httpGetUrl="wsdl" />
					<serviceDebug includeExceptionDetailInFaults="true"/>

            <service behaviorConfiguration="bAuthentication" 
                <endpoint address="" binding="basicHttpBinding"


In my wcf operations I return this data contract (wrap data as Result and
    public class ServiceReturnValueWrapper<T>
        public ServiceData<T> Result { get; set; }

        public WasolicException Error { get; set; }

where ServiceData<T> is generic type (because I return from different
function different result):
    public class ServiceData<T>
        public T Data { get; set; }

If error occured, it is after call this function (error occured 3 times from
public ServiceReturnValueWrapper<SecurityToken> IssueNewSecurityToken()
            return new ServiceReturnValueWrapper<SecurityToken>
                Result = new ServiceData<SecurityToken>
                    Data = new SecurityToken
                        Identity = new Identity()
                            UserName = string.Empty,
                            PasswordHash = string.Empty,
                            PasswordSalt =
                            IsAuthenticated = false,
                            Roles = new List<string>(),
                            Profile = -1,

                            DateCreated = DateTime.Now,
                            DateLastUpdate = DateTime.Now

                Error = null
Security token contains Identity which contains data member above in code.

I think that problem is with PasswordSalt in Identity.  Because error
occured sometimes (3 times from 5) because Salt is random generated -
sometimes generated chars which is ok for wcf, but sometimes it is no ok.
Generating salt is from this function:

public static byte[] GetSalt(int _size)
            byte[] saltBytes = new byte[_size];

            RNGCryptoServiceProvider rng = new RNGCryptoServiceProvider();


            return saltBytes;

>>And it'd be a lot nicer if you try mono from trunk instead of old 2.6.3.

How can I simply get trunk version for Windows? And how install it?
