[Mono-list] ASHX Handlers and GAC

I've found strange error while using .ashx Handlers from assembly installed into 

When I run website with assemblies in /bin folder it works just fine.
But when I remove bin folder and install dlls into GAC using command "gacutil2 
-i MySite.dll" I get error message like

System.Web.HttpException: Type MySite.captcha not found.
   at System.Web.UI.SimpleWebHandlerParser.GetTypeFromBin (System.String tname) 
[0x001a0] in 


But when I delete .ashx files website works just fine, include aspx-, 
master-pages and asax.

I use the following lines in web.config to load my assembly from GAC:
<compilation defaultLanguage="c#" debug="false">
<assemblies><add assembly="MySite" /></assemblies>

Is it Mono bug or my mistake with configuration?
It repeats on Mono 2.8 and Mono 2.6.4.

I highly appreciate any help!

All the best,
