[MonoDevelop] Mono 2.6 breaks Chiron (Silverlight dev tool) on Mac OS X

Hello all,

I'm developing Silverlight apps on Mac OS X using a development tool called
Chiron that is run with Mono and dynamically packages the Silverlight
applications (xap files that are really just zip archives).

This ran fine under Mono 2.4.3 but unfortunately under Mono 2.6 started
producing invalid zip files (without reporting any errors). Another
developer who verified the problem is reporting this bug. (Also verified by
another developer at my company - he uses Leopard and I use Snow Leopard.)

*Unfortunately* reinstalling Mono 2.4.3 doesn't fix the problem. Chiron is
still generating invalid zip files. The *only* thing that changed was
installing Mono 2.6.

Any ideas as to what might have caused this and how to fix it? Does
installing Mono 2.6 on Mac OS X also update any dependencies that
reinstalling 2.4 wouldn't remove? Unfortunately our development environment
is now screwed so this is a big problem for us.

All the best,
