[Mono-osx] Playing sounds on OS X

I have a C# app that uses System.Media.SoundPlayer. It appears to work (no
exceptions) but I get no sound from it when running on OS X (it plays fine
on Windows). I am running on Mono 2.6.3, and built the app on Windows/VS2008
(target .NET 2.0/x86). The app displays its window and in all other respects
seems to run OK. Just no sound. I really searched here first, no luck or
ancient Mono-1.1 related info. I even looked in the Mono 2.6 trunk
sources... something about ALSA drivers? I then looked for ALSA for MAC OS X
and found only a scary article on patching something into the kernel, which
I am unwilling to do as a "shot in the dark" attempt - then what about my
users' systems???.

I must be barking up the wrong tree. Does anyone know what I am missing?
