That doesn't sound right, I don't think Mono can generate pdb files.

It's hard to diagnose without debugging, but if you don't have line
numbers in stack traces in if you use mono --debug on the device, that
implies you don't have the correct mdb files beside the assemblies.
AFAIK the stack trace should print the original Windows paths.
