[IronPython] Loading IronPython.dll from memory

I snipped a little extra - my code is really:
Dictionary<string, object> runtimeOptions = new Dictionary<string,
runtimeOptions["Debug"] = true;
m_runtime = IronPython.Hosting.Python.CreateRuntime(runtimeOptions);
m_runtime.LoadAssembly(typeof(String).Assembly); // Add reference to System
m_runtime.LoadAssembly(typeof(Uri).Assembly); // Add reference to mscorlib
m_engine = m_runtime.GetEngine("Python");
I've also tried replacing the above with:
m_engine = Python.CreateEngine();
and I get the same exception in the call to Python.CreateEngine()
(Note: the exception exists without all the extra LoadAssemblys and
stripped to the bone).
