[Mono-list] System.Web.Security.Membership causes an exception on mono platform

I'm trying to deploy a MVC3 site on a CentOS server using mono and mod_mono
on apache. After a week of agonizing installations and configurations, I
got the site up, but a MembershipProvider still acts up. My mono version is
3.10.0, installed from source and got from a git branch.

While the code works fine on a windows machine, in a mono environment I get
an exception while trying to log in, at the row below:
if (Membership.ValidateUser(userid, password))

The exception message is:
An exception was thrown by the type initializer for

The stack trace does not tell much:
  at boa.BoaCommander.Controllers.AccountController.VerifyUser
(System.String userid, System.String password, Boolean rememberme)
[0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0

In my Web.config I have the membership provider defined like this:
<membership defaultProvider="BoaMembershipProvider">
<add name="BoaMembershipProvider"
connectionStringName="BoaMySqlConnection" applicationName="BOA"

... and the class BoaMembershipProvider inherits MembershipProvider.

What can I do to fix this problem? I'd appreciate Your comments.
