[IronPython] GetTypeFromProgID and Remoting issue

I run into a problem similar to "Remoting is broken for well-known objects" work item id 470.
But I'm using the following pattern (to access a DCOM object):
>>>t = System.Type.GetTypeFromProgID("Namespace.MyRemoteType", "MyRemoteMachineName")
>>>obj = System.Activator.CreateInstance(t)
I tried the typedproxy helper class workaround for the above workitem issue (when using Activator.GetObject), but it doesn't solve this problem. I get the following error when using the typedproxy workaround:
IronPython.Runtime.Exceptions.ArgumentTypeException: descriptor 'MyMethod' requires a 'MyRemoteType' object but received a 'MarshalByRefObject'
I know this works from c# (without the typed proxy workaround, of course). Is there an alternate workaround?
I know this question is out of scope here, but, is there an alternate way to access DCOM objects (without doing a .NET publish in a process on the remote machine?
