Hi Brian

I gave up trying to compile pythonnet with mcs. When I was done, mono 
segvs all over the place. Also, I couldn't find ildasm in the mono 
distribution so I used monodis instead.

So now I am using the distributed pythonnet -1.0-rc2

I am running the pythonnet tests under mono and I get a few failures.

1) FAIL: Test the str() representation of an exception.
The string I got from mono was:
..................String was not recognized as a valid DateTime

2) FAIL: Test implicit assembly loading via import

3)also, the conversion test
def test():
            ConversionTest().DoubleField = 1.7976931348623159e308

did not overflow. When I do >print 1.7976931348623159e308 I get

4) The testRemoveInternalCallHandler test in test_events causes mono to 
segv. The line "from CLR.System.Windows.Forms import Form" causes this.

5) Same thing in test_method in the function  testSubclassInstanceConversion
