Hi guys,

My application p/invokes 'A.dylib' that requires 'B.dylib'.  Both are
part of the project and are copied to the 'Resources' directory in the
application bundle as part of the build.

When running this from MonoDevelop (version I always get a
DllNotFound exception for 'A.dylib'.  Unfortunately this doesn't tell
me whether the error is that it really cannot find 'A.dylib' or that
it fails to find 'B.dylib' (which is referenced from 'A').

By setting the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH to the 'Resources' directory I can at
least make it work from the command line, but that's not really a

Any hints?  Are there any MONO_DEBUG settings that might help in this case?
