[Mono-list] MONO_CONFIG not working

I'm trying to load an application with an alternative config file under mono 3.2.3.  It appears from the mono-config man page that you can use the MONO_CONFIG environment variable to specify the path to a config file, but it still doesn't seem to work.  Here is how I'm trying to specify my own config:

export MONO_CONFIG="/Users/dc/MonoTstng/bin/Debug/Baz.config"; mono MonoTsting.exe

I've also set MONO_LOG_LEVEL=debug and MONO_LOG_MASK=cfg and I see the output 

Mono: Config attempting to parse: '/Users/dc/MonoTstng/bin/Debug/Baz.config'.

but the appSettings I'm setting in Baz.config aren't available to my application.  I've also tried the mono --config option, same result.

Are the MONO_CONFIG environment variable and the mono --config option no longer supported?  Is there some way to get the runtime to load an alternative config file?
