[Mono-osx] JSON from [WebMethod] differs between Mac and Linux

I have an ASP.NET app that was developed primarily in C# on Mono on Linux.
It uses JQuery on the client side. I have a few methods tagged with the
[WebMethod] attribute in my .aspx pages which generate JSON in response to
.ajax requests from JQuery.
When I serve this application from Apache/mod_mono or XSP on Linux, the JSON
that comes back is wrapped in a 'd' object that is added by the framework.
If I serve this app from XSP on OSX, the JSON comes back without the 'd'
wrapper. This breaks the client-side code.
Is this an intentional difference between OSX and Linux? Can I configure
this behavior somehow?
My understanding is that Microsoft added the 'd' wrapper in .NET 3.5 to
prevent certain kinds of cross site scripting attacks. I am not sure when
it was added to Mono but I cannot remember it not being there on either
Linux or Windows.
I am using Mono 126.96.36.199 on Linux, Mono 2.4.3 on Windows, and Mono 2.6.1 on
Here is a more concrete example of what I am saying:
