This is not a bug. It's by design. Even an embedded Mono is bound
to the .NET assembly binding rules.

Yes. There are plenty of options for changing the binding rules:

- reconsider changing the rules because they make sense
- MONO_PATH (see Mono's man page)
- App.config's <assemblyBinding> (see MSDN)
- assembly load hooks (see include/mono-x.x/metadata/assembly.h,
   mono_install_assembly_preload_hook and friends).
