That's definitely a bug, but I've only seen it on a Mac ... granted it really pissed me off =P  I'll be fixing this in a day or so, so I can give you a patched version of Chiron then ... Unless you've fixed it already =P

Hello guys,

I've been following the instructions on Jimmy's blog entry about
packaging Silverlight applications:


I'm trying to get the application assemblies stored outside the 'xap'
file, by using the urlprefix configuration in 'Chiron.exe.config'.

As described in Jimmy's blog, I add the following line to the
'appSettings' element of the config file:

    <add key="urlPrefix" value="/lib" />

This actually causes Chiron to generate the following in the manifest file:

    <AssemblyPart Name="Microsoft.Scripting.Silverlight"
Source="file:///lib/Microsoft.Scripting.Silverlight.dll" />
    <AssemblyPart Source="file:///lib/Microsoft.Scripting.dll" />
    <AssemblyPart Source="file:///lib/IronPython.dll" />
    <AssemblyPart Source="file:///lib/IronPython.Modules.dll" />

Which seems wrong. :-)

I guess it is just a bug in Chiron... (or I am doing something wrong.)
