[Mono-list] SSL Certificate Store

Well, I grepped around the source and found the path for the user is
/usr-dir/.config/.mono (thanks, Sebastien for cluing me into "man
mono").  Unfortunately blowing this away and redoing mozroots and
certmgr doesn't seem to be working on my CentOS machine.  Can anyone
confirm this is a bug?

mono --version

Here's the code that's failing:

        static void SendEmail()
            var sender = "sender at gmail.com";
            var email = "receiver at mail.com";
            var from = new MailAddress(sender, "Sender");
            var to = new MailAddress(email);
            var mail = new MailMessage(from, to);

            // Set the content.
            mail.Subject = "Subject";
            mail.Body = "Body";

            // Send the message.
            SmtpClient smtp = new SmtpClient("smtp.gmail.com", 587);
            smtp.EnableSsl = true;
            smtp.Credentials = new NetworkCredential(sender, "password");

            // Timeouts may occur while sending - attempt it three times.
            var sent = false;
            var attempts = 0;
            while (!sent && attempts < 3)

                    sent = true;
                catch (Exception e)
                    if (e.InnerException != null)

                    // Give it some time.

            Console.WriteLine("sent: {0}", sent);
