Some reflection methods don't work correctly if they are unable to
walk managed stack frames. When mono_runtime_invoke () is called
on such a method, no managed stack frames exist and these methods
are simply crashing.

You can work around this issue by providing helpers for these

public static Assembly GetExecutingAssembly ()
	return Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly ();

public static Assembly GetCallingAssembly ()
	return Assembly.GetCallingAssembly ();

You may want to file a bug, but I believe the issue is by design.
