The domain is automatically switched at this line:


"appHost" is actually a proxy of the real object.

Your code is alright as it is, because you don't need to attach
threads to a specific domain.

mono_thread_attach (mono_domain_get());

is sufficient.

As a rule of thumb, whenever the Mono API is expecting a
domain argument, mono_domain_get () is almost always right.
