[Mono-list] Mono-Only XDocument.Save Error

I can duplicate this problem on Linux Mint 12 and Ubuntu 11.10, but 
Microsoft.NET on Windows 7 does not have the issue. The issue is that my 
XDocument becomes corrupted the moment it loads, and cannot be saved. 
Strangely, I am able to traverse it and manipulate it in memory. The 
following code:

Stream s = File.Open("example.xml", FileMode.Open);
XDocument d = XDocument.Load(s);

Produces the following exception:

[23:19:05] PartyCraft.CurrentDomain_UnhandledException: Error: 
InvalidOperationException: This XmlWriter does not accept Text at this 
state Prolog.

The same exception occurs on d.ToString();

The XML that is being loaded looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<server maxplayers="100">
<motd>PartyCraft Test Server</motd>
<suicide>§e{0} killed themselves.</suicide>
<creeper>§e{0} looked at a creeper funny.</creeper>



And when saved, even though an exception occurs, the document is 
overwritten with this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

This is the output from mono --version:

Mono JIT compiler version 2.10.5 (Debian 2.10.5-1)

Any help would be appreciated.
