[Mono-list] MSMQ Example Does Not Work

Hello.  I'm trying to use Microsoft's MSMQ to send/receive messages on a
queue.  I tried running the example from
http://www.mono-project.com/SystemMessaging, but I get "Unhandled Exception:
System.Messaging.MessageQueueException: Unable to connect to Queue at
System.Messaging.MessageQueue.Send (System.Object obj) [0x00000] in
<filename unknown>:0.  I created the executable using MonoDevelop 2.4 with a
build date of 2010-09-30 and the info from "mono -V" is:
Mono JIT compiler version 2.6.7 (Debian 2.6.7-5ubuntu3), Copyright 2002-2010

So, my questions:
1) Has anyone gotten this to work and if so can you please specify your
release of Mono and (it probably shouldn't matter but) your Linux
2) Can anyone recommend a different messaging mechanism that works both on
Windows and in Mono?  If not, can anyone just recommend a messaging
mechanism that works in just Mono?  I'm just trying to send messages between
processes/threads in the same PC/box, nothing fancy.

Thanks in advance,
Eric F
