This was fixed a few months ago, so you'll need to try again with Mono 
2.4 (should be fixed in the latest preview releases, and 2.4 final is 
coming out next month).

If you continue to have problems, please try running your app from the 
command line with `mono --debug myapp.exe`, and paste the stack trace of 
the crash here (or in a bug report).
