If I understand correctly, your application seems to be a managed
one. In this case it's even *hard* to violate the LGPL because
you don't need to modify or statically link the Mono runtime
(the only part of Mono that's LGPL).

The only error you could commit evolves along how you're redistributing
a LGPL software, but this is pretty clearly explained by the LGPL
